Brussels police surround houses seeking Paris suspects

Dozens of Belgian police, including armed special commandos, surrounded houses in a residential street in the district of Molenbeek on Monday, and the public broadcaster denied a report a man wanted in connection with the Paris attacks was arrested.
State-controlled RTBF carried a denial of a report by private broadcaster RTL that Saleh Abdeslam, a 26-year-old Frenchman based in the Belgian capital, had been detained.
Police said the operation was related to the Paris attacks.
The Paris prosecutorand’s office said on Monday two more suicide bombers involved in deadly attacks in the French capital have been identified. Prosecutors said that one suicide bomber who blew himself up in the Bataclan music hall Friday night was Samy Amimour, a 28-year-old Frenchman charged in a terrorism investigation in 2012. He had been placed under judicial supervision but dropped off the radar and was the subject of an international arrest warrant.
Prosecutors say three people in Amimourand’s family entourage have been in custody since early Monday.
A suicide bomber who blew himself up outside the national soccer stadium was found with a Syrian passport with the name Ahmad Al Mohammad, a 25-year-old born in Idlib. The prosecutorand’s office says fingerprints from the attacker match those of someone who passed through Greece in October.
A French official also said on Monday that the suspected mastermind of the Paris attacks was also linked to thwarted train and church attacks. The official has identified the suspected mastermind as Belgian Abdelhamid Abaaoud, and said he is believed linked to thwarted attacks on a Paris-bound high-speed train and Paris area church.
The official, who has direct knowledge of the investigation, was not authorized to be publicly identified as speaking about the ongoing probe.
Seven people are in custody in Belgium suspected of links to the attacks and an international arrest warrant has been issued for a Belgian-born Frenchman believed involved in the attacks and who is still at large.
