A 35-year-old Algerian man who was killed during a police raid in Belgium on Tuesday had been sought in connection with the Paris terrorist attacks last year, Belgian prosecutors say.
The man was identified as Mohamed Belkaid. Investigators have now determined that Belkaid "most probably" was the person using the false identity of Samir Bouzid, who had ties to Paris attack fugitive Salah Abdeslam, the prosecutors say.
Bouzid was one of two men whom Belgian police were seeking because they had travelled with Abdeslam to Hungary last September. The two men had used fake Belgian identity cards. Other activities linked to the Paris attacks have also been carried out in these names.
