BRUSSELS, March 22. /TASS/. It is too early to say the latest blasts at Brussels airport are linked with the arrest of the chief suspect in the Paris terrorist attacks, Salah Abdeslam, a police source has told TASS.
Abdeslam, one of the suspected organizers of last November’s terrorist attacks in Paris and four other potential accomplices were detained in the Molenbeek Commune (Belgium) in a large-scale security sweep on March 18.
Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon has warned the elimination of this terrorist cell may trigger other terrorists to act. He said the terrorist organization Islamic State (outlawed in Russia) still had a large network in Europe, in particular, in Belgium and France. He added that was the reason why Belgium preferred to preserve level three (last but one) level of terrorist threat.
