Belgium Charges Third Suspect in Foiled Paris Attack Plot; Brussels Airport to Reopen

Brussels Airport CEO announced some passenger flights will resume Sunday

A third suspect has been been charged in connection with the foiled French terror attack, the Belgian federal prosecutor said Saturday, NBC News reported.

A Belgian national, identified only as Y.A. by the prosecutor, was arrested as part of the investigation into Reda Kriket, a French terror suspect officials nabbed two days after bombers attacked Brussels' airport and a subway station on March 22.

Kriket's apartment in the French suburb of Argenteuil had an arsenal of weapons, including assault rifles and explosives, the Paris prosecutor said earlier this week.

Meanwhile, the head of the Brussels Airport said Saturday that some passenger flights will resume Sunday for the first time since twin blasts devastated the departure hall last month.

The airport has been closed since the March 22 suicide bombings that killed 16 victims at the airport and another 16 in the Brussels subway and wounded 270 people.
