Belgian federal prosecutors said a man named Faycal Cheffou had been charged with participation in a terrorist group, terrorist killings and attempted terrorist killings.

Belgium is a nation on high alert following the rush hour attacks at the airport and a metro stop in the capital .Brussels airport has announced that it will not re-open for passenger flights before Tuesday, as experts examine the damage to the building.

Now attention is turning to the security of Belgium’s nuclear facilities, after eleven workers had their security passes revoked due to intelligence warnings.

Though security was stepped up around nuclear plants, the EU’s counter-terrorism chief says that the facilities and other major infrastructure remain at risk of a cyberattack.

In total nine people have been arrested in Belgium as investigations continue to uncover jihadist networks in the wake of the Brussels attacks.

The makeshift tribute to the 31 victims and more than 260 injured in the attacks continues to grow over the weekend, as Brussels comes to terms with the events of Tuesday.
