ISIS threatens more countries after Brussels

23 March 2016, 10:24

Brussels - ISIS has issued an updated communique taking credit for the Brussels attacks and threatening other countries taking part in the anti-ISIS coalition.

The statement promises "dark days" for countries allied against the Islamic State, threatening that "what is coming is worse and more bitter."

The communique was published in Arabic and French, and an English translation was provide by the SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadi websites.

ISIS also released photos purportedly showing its fighters in Syria giving out candy to children to celebrate the Brussels attacks, according to SITE.

A Belgian security official says the death toll has risen to 34 in attacks on the Brussels airport and a subway station.

The official did not specify how many people were killed and wounded at each site. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because precise numbers were expected to be announced early Wednesday.

Earlier, the government had reported 20 dead at the Maelbeek metro station, in the heart of the European Union's capital, and 11 dead at the airport, and scores of injured.
