Brussels attacks: Paris attack suspect Abdeslam goes silent
Publish Time 2016-03-26 12:15:00
Paris attack suspect Salah Abdeslam refused to speak when asked about Tuesday's attacks in Brussels, Belgian prosecutors say.
They said that Abdeslam, arrested last week in Brussels and initially cooperative, had "exercised his right to silence" and said nothing when interviewed after Tuesday's bombings.
He was seized days before the Brussels attacks, in which 31 people died. Twelve people were arrested on Thursday and Friday in three countries. Six were detained in Belgium on Thursday and three on Friday, though several were later released. Two were held in Germany and one in France, as a plot said to be in its advanced stages was foiled.
Meanwhile Belgian officials named the second suicide bomber in Tuesday's attack at Brussels airport as Najim Laachraoui, and said that his DNA was also found at sites of the November Paris attacks.
