Brussels Terror Suspect Laachraoui Arrested: Reports

A fugitive terror suspect in Tuesday's Brussels bombings was arrested Wednesday morning, according to Belgian newspaper DH. Najim Laachraoui, suspected to be involved in the Zaventem airport explosions, was arrested in the city's Anderlecht district by a special forces unit, the newspaper said. Laachraoui is believed to be the third man identified in a photograph at the Brussels Airport on Tuesday, shortly before two suicide bombs went off and killed 14 people. Two of the men -- brothers Khalid and Brahim El Bakraoui -- are said to have died in the blasts. Authorities had been searching for Laachraoui after his DNA was found in a Brussels apartment where the suicide bombs used in the November Paris attacks were believed to be assembled.
