BRUSSELS (AP) — A man detained by Belgian authorities in connection with the Brussels attacks has been released by a judge.

The judge found there was no evidence to justify holding Faycal C., the Belgian Federal Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Monday.

Prosecutors had reported earlier that Fayal C. was facing preliminary charges of “involvement in a terrorist group, terrorist murder and attempted terrorist murder.”

Belgian media had claimed the man — who they identified as Fayal Cheffou — had been seen on video with the suicide bombers at the airport on Tuesday morning before the attacks.

But police on Monday released airport surveillance video of a man with the two airport suicide bombers and asked for the public’s help in establishing his identity.
