Europe’s most wanted terrorist and suspect of key Paris attacks, Mohamed Abrini, has been nabbed by the Belgian authorities along with four others on Friday. Police authorities said that the arrested people includes a man they believe may have helped the Brussels bombers.

According to an Aljazeera report, the prosecutors said they were also looking into whether Abrini is the third suspect seen on CCTV images next to the two suicide bombers who blew themselves up at the Brussels airport on March 22.

"We are investigating if Abrini can be identified as the third person at the Brussels national airport, the so-called man with the hat," said prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt.

Abrini, a 31-year-old Belgian, has been on Europe's most wanted list since the November 13 Paris attacks, in which 130 people were killed.

He was last seen two days before the attacks in a motorway service station CCTV video driving with another Paris attacks suspect - Salah Abdeslam, who was arrested last month - towards the French capital from Belgium.

The car they drove was used in the attacks, in which Abdeslam's elder brother was a suicide bomber.
