No weapons found after search of charged Brussels suspect's home

The home of a suspect who has been charged in connection with the Brussels terrorist attacks was searched by police, but no weapons or explosives were found, prosecutors say in a statement.

They identify the suspect only as Faycal C. Belgian media say his full name is Faycal Cheffou.

The newspaper Le Soir reports that he is believed to be the third attacker at the Brussels airport who has been on the run. State broadcaster RTDF reported that police were waiting for DNA analyses to confirm this information.

Prosecutors say they have also charged two other people with participation in the activities of a terrorist group but do not establish a direct link between them and the Brussels attacks.
