A daring and deadly terror attack shook the Belgian capital of Brussels yesterday, with the death toll rising to 35 by Tuesday night.
Two explosions at the Zaventem Airport as well as a third explosion at a metro station came just days after the arrest of a Paris bombing terror suspect, Salah Abdelslam. Belgian media released photos yesterday of the suspected bombers at the airport with speculations that the explosives were contained in their gloves.
ISIS, also known as The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s bombing and the terror group said in a statement, “Islamic State fighters opened fire inside Zaventem Airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maalbeek metro station,”
CCTV footage from the airport shows three men pushing trolleys, two of whom are believed to have detonated their explosives while a third man is suspected to still be alive after he failed to detonate his explosives.
