Brussels bombing suspect let go as new 'man in hat' CCTV footage released

Belgian police have released a man that they had initially charged with "participation in a terrorist group" and "terrorist killings" in connection with the Brussels attacks on the same day that they revealed new CCTV footage of another suspect.

Faycal C, who was the only person charged in connection with last week's attacks, was released due to "lack of evidence", prosecutors said.

It comes as US Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump warned Britain and Europe are "not safe" following the recent terror attacks.

Belgian officials have called for three days of national mourning in the wake of today's deadly terror attacks in Brussels.

Belgium is on the highest level of terror alert after at least 34 people were killed and almost 200 injured in bomb attacks at Brussels Airport in Zaventem and Maelbeek Metro Station this morning.

The airport remains closed until at least tomorrow and all Eurostar trains to and from Brussels have been suspended for most of today, with services from London terminating in the French city of Lille.
