Belgium charges 2 with terrorism over Paris attacks

Belgian authorities have charged two people who were arrested after the Paris attacks with involvement in terrorism, prosecutors say.

The pair were charged “with a terrorist act and participation in the activities of a terrorist group,” while five others detained at the weekend were freed without charge, the prosecutor’s office says in a statement.

It does not give the names of the people who were charged.

One of those released is Mohamed Abdeslam — whose brother Brahim took part in the attacks and whose other brother Salah is being hunted by police.

The prosecutors confirm that a major police raid in Brussels on Monday aimed at arresting Salah Abdeslam has ended without anyone being detained.
