Belgium charges two for aiding jihadis

The arrests come more than one year after the attacks occurred

A spokesperson said a man identified as Farid K was in custody after being charged with "participation to the activities of a terrorist group, falsification of documents and use of false documents".

The man and woman, named as Farid K and Meryem E.B. respectively, were arrested after a house raid in Brussels, the federal prosecutor's office said.

"They are suspected of having provided Khalid El Bakraoui with the false documents later used in preparation for the Paris attacks", the prosecutors said in a statement.

Bakraoui died during his involvement in an attack on a Brussels rail station in March 2016 in which 32 people were killed and more than 300 injured.

Belgian authorities have charged two people with supplying fake documents to an Islamic State (ISIS) militant involved in the November 2015 attacks in Paris and who later carried out a suicide bombing on the Brussels metro, prosecutors said on Thursday.

Two people were arrested on Tuesday in Laeken, near Brussels, under the Belgian investigation file on jihadist attacks committed in Paris in November 2015.

Another member, Salah Abdeslam, was arrested months later in Belgium.

Some 20 people have been charged in Belgium in connection with the investigation into the Paris attacks. He is suspected of driving three attackers to the Stade de France and purchasing detonators for the botched attack.
