Brussels bombings carried out by two brothers

Belgium’s federal prosecutor confirms that two brothers carried out suicide attacks at Brussels airport and on a metro train that killed 31 people and wounded 270.

Ibrahim El Bakraoui blew himself up in the check-in hall of Zaventem airport while Khalid El Bakraoui attacked a metro train at Maalbeek station near the EU headquarters, Frederic van Leeuw tells a news conference.

He also says that the third Brussels attack suspect, Najim Laachraoui, is still on the run, confirming that he wasn’t apprehended — contrary to earlier reports.
