TWO more suspects have been charged in connection with the Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people in November 2015.

Belgian officials announced that the suspects are suspected of providing documents used in the preparation of the attack, claimed by ISIS.

Belgian police detained a man and a woman in a house search in the Brussels suburb of Laeken yesterday, prosecutors said.

The woman, identified as Meryem E. B., was released under strict conditions. The man, named as Farid K., remained in custody. They have both been charged with participating in the activities of a terrorist organisation.

Khalid El Bakraoui was involved in planning the attacks in Paris on the evening of November 13 2015 in which 130 people were killed. He then blew himself up in the Brussels metro last March, as part of coordinated attacks that killed 32 people.

Investigators later established that the attackers in Paris and Brussels were all carried out by the same ISIS cell, and have been looking for their accomplices ever since.
