BRUSSELS - Belgian investigators believe a man arrested on Thursday was a suspected accomplice of the suicide bomber who killed about 20 people on the Brussels metro on Tuesday, a person familiar with the investigation said.

"We have strong indications that this is the suspect who was hunted for the last couple of days. The identification is still ongoing," he said, referring to man caught on CCTV entering Maelbeek station with presumed bomber Khalid El Bakraoui.

The second man also carried a bag and it is not known whether he was also supposed to blow himself up on the metro.
