ISIS claims Brussels attacks

22 March 2016, 21:44

Beirut - The Islamic State group was responsible for Tuesday's deadly attacks in the Belgian capital Brussels, an online news agency affiliated with the jihadists said.

At least 34 people died in the bombings. 

"Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices on Tuesday, targeting an airport and a central metro station in the centre of the Belgian capital Brussels, a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State," the Aamaq news agency said.

"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," the agency said in a report published on its English-language site.

ISIS had not yet released any official claim of responsibility for the attacks, which also left more than 200 people wounded.

The bloodshed came just four days after the dramatic arrest in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam - the prime suspect in the Paris attacks claimed by ISIS - after four months on the run.

Meanwhile, Belgian authorities have published surveillance camera images of three suspects in the attack on Brussels airport, in which at least 14 people were killed, Belga news agency reported.

The grainy picture, which Belga said was released by Belgian police at the request of the federal prosecutor, shows three men pushing trollies with suitcases past the check-in area. Two have dark hair and one is wearing a hat.
