Belgian prosecutors have charged three men with terrorist offences, including a suspect who local media said appeared on security footage with two suicide bombers at Brussels airport shortly before they detonated their bombs.
Prosecutors named the third man as Faycal C. while Belgian media identified him as Faycal Cheffou.
The media reports said he was the man wearing a hat and a light-coloured jacket in last Tuesday’s airport picture that showed three men pushing baggage trolleys bearing luggage.
Prosecutors said Faycal C. had been charged with involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder. They would not confirm the Belgian media reports about his identity.

His home had been searched though no weapons or explosives had been found, they said.
You know, CBC, often the censors you hire make you look down right stupid…
From October 1988 to September 1994 the voices of representatives from Sinn Féin and several Irish republican andloyalist groups were banned by the British government from being broadcast on television and radio in the United Kingdom. The restrictions, announced by the Home Secretary, Douglas Hurd, on 19 October 1988, covered eleven organisations based in Northern Ireland and followed a heightened period of violence in the history of the Troubles, as well as the government’s belief in a need to prevent Sinn Féin from using the media for political advantage.
Broadcasters quickly found ways around the ban, chiefly by dubbing the voice of anyone who was prevented from speaking with the voice of an actor. The legislation did not apply during election campaigns, and under certain other circumstances. The restrictions caused difficulties for British journalists who objected to censorship in various other countries, such as Iraq and India. (Wikipedia)
And, speaking of corporate media only reporting what it is allowed to report…What every happened to Jane Standley, the chick who reported on the collapse of Building Seven on September 11, 2001, 26 minutes before it happened? While the building was standing, intact, live in the window behind her?
