Two more men have been charged with terrorism-related offences in connection with the Brussels bombings, Belgian authorities have said.

The Belgian Federal Prosecutor's office said the suspects, identified only as Smail F and Ibrahim F, were involved in renting an apartment in the Etterbeek area of Brussels which served as a hideout for the bomber who attacked the Brussels subway as well as a suspected accomplice.

Sixteen people died in the attack on March 22, the same day a pair of suicide bombers killed 16 people at Brussels airport.
