    As Belgium comes to terms with Tuesday's deadly attacks, questions are being asked as to how and why the bombers targeted the country's capital.

    The timing of the Brussels attacks, just four days after the arrest of the prime suspect of last year's Paris attacks, appears to be no coincidence.

    Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland reports from the Molenbeek district, where Saleh Abdeslam was arrested.
