Prosecutors allege that two British men gave money to a key suspect in the Brussels and Paris bombings. Prosecutor Max Hill says Zakaria Boufassil and Mohammed Ali Ahmed — both from Birmingham — assisted suspect Mohamed Abrini, handing him £3,000 ($3,700) between July 9 and July 16, 2015, when he traveled to England from abroad.

Abrini is the “man in the hat” seen on video footage moments before the deadly March 22 bombings at Brussels airport that killed 16 people. He is also wanted in the Nov. 13, 2015, attacks on Paris.

The British men are on trial at Kingston Crown Court, charged with supplying money with the intention of committing or assisting another to commit acts of terrorism.

Hill says Abrini visited a casino while in the U.K.
