Investigators have searched an apartment in Brussels they believe served as a bomb factory for the Paris attacks, a Belgian prosecutor said.

The same residence was probably used as a hideout after the November 13 attacks by fugitive suspect Salah Abdeslam, federal prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt said.

The third-floor apartment in the Schaerbeek district was searched in December.

Three handmade belts that could have been intended to transport explosives, as well as bomb-making equipment, traces of TATP explosive residue and a fingerprint from Abdeslam were found there, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office said.
