BRUSSELS, Belgium -- Belgian prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for a new suspect in Tuesday's attacks on the Brussels airport and subway.

The federal prosecutor's office said in a statement on Saturday that an arrest warrant has been issued for a man only identified as Faycal C.

Belgian media are reporting that a man called Faycal Cheffou has been identified as the man suspected of fleeing Brussels airport after two alleged accomplices blew themselves up there.
