Public prosecutors said on Saturday that Belgian Mohamed Abrini has admitted to being the "man in a hat" seen on security camera footage from the Brussels airport bombing. Abrini was arrested on Friday in Brussels during a series of raids throughout the city. Prosecutors charged Abrini and three others with terrorist activity for their suspected roles in the Brussels bombings and November's Paris attacks. One of the arrested was Bilal El Makhouhki, who had already been convicted for working with jihadist recruiters. With the arrests, all of the main known suspects in the attacks appear to have been taken off Europe's streets.
