New documents obtained by Belgian media say officials were concerned with extremist views held by Paris attack suspect Bilal Hadfi.

A suspected suicide bomber in the Paris attacks apparently had a history of extremism in his Brussels school.

Local media also says the Belgium citizen went to Syria in April — a trip the Brussels education administration was notified of.

A Belgian police committee is currently investigating why information about Hadfi wasn’t turned over to authorities sooner.
