The Belgian Federal Prosecutor's Office has launched an appeal for information on a third person suspected of involvement in the Brussels Airport bombings, which were claimed by the Daesh militant group.
A spokesman for the prosecutor said an arrest warrant has been issued for the person known as the "man in the hat."
Attacks on the airport and metro system on March 22, 2016, killed 32 people.
Thierry Werts urged anyone with information — whether in the form of photos, videos or anything else — to call or email the Brussels police using the contact details given on its website.
On Wednesday (April 6), Belgium's Prime Minister Charles Michel defended his country's approach to the fight against terror and dismissed suggestions that the nation is a "failed state."
