Paris attacks: Key suspect Abrini 'arrested'

The key remaining suspect in November's Paris terror attacks, Mohamed Abrini, has been arrested, Belgian media say.
Sources cited in Belgian media say Abrini is also likely to be the "man in the hat" seen on CCTV before the blasts in the Brussels airport departure hall on 22 March.
Prosecutors confirmed that several arrests had been made in connection with the Brussels attacks.
The attacks on the airport and a metro station left 32 dead.

The gun and bomb attacks in Paris on 13 November killed 130 people.
Although the Belgian federal prosecutor confirmed that "there have been several arrests in the course of the day in connection with the attacks on the airport and metro", they would give no further details.
Local media reports suggest that Abrini, on the run for five months, was arrested in the Anderlecht district of Brussels.
The Associated Press quoted French police as saying that he was one of the arrested men. He had not been directly linked to the Brussels attacks until today.
