Brussels Bombing Suspect Charged Over Paris AttackBrussels Bombing Suspect Charged Over Paris Attack

Mohamed Abrini, the suspected bomber caught on camera during the Brussels airport attack, has been charged in France over the November 2015 terrorist attack in Paris, his lawyers said. Belgium transferred Abrini over to the French authorities this morning for a day so that he could face charges related to the deaths of 130 people in the French capital, RTE reported. Abrini was captured in Brussels in April over his suspected involvement in the 22 March 2016 Brussels attacks and the Paris killings, both of which were claimed by the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group. Belgian investigators have said the Brussels airport and metro bombers, who killed a total of 32 people, were part of the same Brussels-based cell that orchestrated the Paris attacks. The main suspect in the Paris attacks is Salah Abdeslam, a Belgian-born French national believed to be the only survivor of the terrorist team behind the carnage.
