French and Belgian media have released a surveillance picture of a group of men they say may be involved in the terror attack on Brussels airport in Zaventem, which has so far left 34 dead and more than 90 injured.
As many as 28 people are reported to have been killed and 90 injured today (22 March 2016) following multiple explosions at the airport and the Brussels Metro system. As social-media accounts operated by supporters of Islamic State (IS) have been celebrating the attacks on the Belgian capital, a screenshot has emerged of surveillance-camera footage purportedly showing the three suspects.
One suspect 'still on the run'
Various media reports have described how the two men wearing black (left and centre) of the image are the suicide bombers who may have blown themselves up at the airport, while the third man (in white, right) is said to be "on the run and actively sought after". Both men in black are captured wearing gloves on their left hands – a detail that has been linked to the fact that the gloves could have been used to dissimulate a bomb trigger of an explosive belt.
The picture emerged hours after the Belgian Foreign Minister, Didier Reynders, told media the investigation into the attacks was "still ongoing" and that the authorities were fearing that there "were still people on the run".
In his latest statement, Pierre Meyse, a spokesman for Brussel's fire-fighters confirmed that 14 people had died in the airport attack and another 14 had lost their life in the Maelbeek Metro attack. Meyse confirmed that at least 96 people had been injured in the airport attack.
