BRUSSELS Belgian authorities arrested a sixth person late on Friday in connection with the suicide attacks in Brussels which killed 32 victims on March 22, Belgium's justice minister said.

Koen Geens said the man was a former Syria fighter who had just finished a prison sentence.

"He was under electronic supervision and his sentence ended on March 15," Geens told Reuters on the sidelines of a government press conference on Saturday.
