BRUSSELS - Police have reportedly arrested a man who was seen on security footage next to Khalid el Bakraoui, the suicide attacker who detonated a bomb in the Maelbeek Metro Station in Brussels.

Local newspaper de standaard is reporting that the man was arrested today after he was recognised by police.

The federal prosecutor's office has not yet confirmed the arrest.

At least 31 people were killed and 270 others were wounded during Tuesday's suicide attacks on Brussels airport and the Maelbeek Metro Station.

Meanwhile, a South African couple living in Brussels have told Eyewitness News that their lifestyle is unlikely to change following the attack.

Barry and Coreen de Waal have been living in Belgium for 15 years.

They run a guest house owned by a local Christian Ministry.

Like most of the city's residents, they're concerned about the risk of further attacks, but say living in fear would be to give in to the terrorists.

Their most immediate worry is that communities will turn on each other and Muslim residents would be targeted for reprisals.

Their guesthouse is just a few blocks from where the suicide bombers lived.

There's every chance they say that they may have passed each other in the streets.

This is an indication that no matter how tight a country's security, Terror is almost impossible to police.
