Belgians report progress in tracing Paris attackers

Belgian investigators say they have now identified three homes used by suspects to prepare the deadly attacks in Paris in November.

The Belgian prosecutor's office said in a statement Wednesday that two apartments and a house all rented under false names and paid for in cash were used by the suspects.

It said a BMW car driven by one suspect, identified only as Mohammed B, had stopped near the apartments in the Brussels suburb of Schaerbeek and the town of Charleroi, as well close to the house in the town of Auvelais.

Prosecutors have said that they suspect the Schaerbeek flat was used to make suicide belts.

The Seat Leon car used in the attacks had also stopped very near the premises in both towns, the statement said.
