AN Algerian man has been arrested in Italy for his presumed involvement in the Brussels terror attacks of March 22. The suspect, Djamal Eddine Ouali, is believed to have produced false documents for terrorists involved in the Belgian attacks.
Numerous raids and arrests have taken place in the aftermath of the bombings, with forty-year-old Ouali becoming the latest after being detained by Italy’s anti-terrorism squad in Salerno, in the south of the country.
The investigation is now being developed over several countries, and it is appearing increasingly likely that the attacks are connected to the November attacks in Paris.
In raids that were carried out on apartments in Brussels in October, Ouali’s name came up, including in documents with photos of some of the terrorists who participated in the attacks on both Paris and Brussels.
As a result of the mounting tension in the Belgian capital, authorities also decided to cancel a planned ‘March against Fear’ that was set to take place on Sunday March 27.
Three men were charged on Saturday, including Faycal Cheffou, the so-called ‘man in the hat’ who appeared in airport footage shortly before the attacks took place.
