From Reuters

Belgian police have identified a prime suspect in Tuesday’s Brussels blasts and two suspected suicide bombers, linking them directly to Islamic State militants behind last November’s Paris attacks, Belgian media reported on Wednesday.

Najim Laachraoui, 25, is believed to be the man seen on CCTV pushing a baggage trolley alongside the bombers and then running out of the Brussels airport terminal.

Earlier some media reported that he had been captured in the Brussels borough of Anderlecht, but they later said the person detained was not Laachraoui.

Belgian officials, providing the first details of the twin terror attacks in Brussels that killed at least 31 people, said Wednesday that more casualties were avoided when a huge bomb failed to detonate at the airport and the terrorist who brought it fled. One suspect has been detained.

In addition, police, tipped by a taxi driver, have raided a bomb making house in the Brussels neighborhood of Schaerbeek and confiscated explosives and a computer, found in a street trash can, that contained a suicide note from one of the attackers.

Strikes Claimed by ISIS Shut Brussels and Shake European Security

BRUSSELS — Bombs packed with nails terrorized Brussels on Tuesday in the deadliest assault on the European heartland since the Islamic State’s attacks on Paris four months ago, hitting the airport and subway system in coordinated strikes that were also claimed by the militant extremist group.

The bombings paralyzed Brussels, the headquarters of the European Union and NATO, prompted international travel warnings to avoid Belgium and reverberated across the Atlantic to the United States, where New York and other major cities raised terrorism threat levels. Anxieties intensified about the inability to prevent mass killings at relatively unprotected places.
