Prosecutors have confirmed that the key remaining suspect in November's Paris terror attacks, Mohamed Abrini, has been arrested in Belgium.

Belgian media say Abrini is also likely to be the "man in the hat" seen on CCTV before the bomb blasts in the Brussels airport departure hall on March 22.

Five arrests were made on Friday.

One suspect, Osama K, will be investigated over the bomb attack on the metro that followed the airport bombing.

The two attacks left 32 people dead.

The gun and bomb attacks in Paris on November 13 killed 130 people.
