Brussels Terror: Bombers used explosives packed in their suitcases

A major manhunt is underway tonight for an ISIS suspect in a white coat and black hat who fled Brussels Airport after two explosions ripped through the terminal in a suicide bomb attack this morning, killing 14 people and injuring dozens of others. Police issued a wanted notice for the man who was seen on CCTV calmly pushing a luggage trolley through the check-in area with two other suspects minutes before the blasts at about 8am (7am GMT) today.

His alleged accomplices were wearing black gloves on their left hands, which security sources say would have hidden the triggers for their explosive vests. Bombs were also said to have been planted in their suitcases which they checked in just minutes before the atrocities, according to the local mayor.

Zaventem mayor Francis Vermeiren said: ‘They came in a taxi with their suitcases, their bombs were in their bags.
‘They put their suitcases on trolleys, the first two bombs exploded. The third also put his on a trolley but he must have panicked, it didn’t explode.’

The two men blew themselves up while the third suspect is believed to have left his nail bomb before being spotted running from the terminal. It is not known if the fugitive then sped to Maelbeek station to carry out the other blast that killed 20 people in a subway train just 79 minutes later. Belgian police launched the manhunt as ISIS claimed responsibility for the massacres, which killed 34 people in total and injured close to 200 others.
