A wanted notice has been released by the Belgian police for a bombing suspect t Brussels’ main airport and metro station that resulted in the death of over 30 people.
The man was seen walking through Zaventem airport along with other two suspects some few minutes before the twin explosion happened.
A Belgian prosecutor said that both men died after they detonated the suicide devices.
The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the Brussels attacks.
Via an online statement, the group said that they “carefully selected” the locations and warned that the worst was yet to happen.
A statement from the US State Department said that “Terrorist groups continue to plan near-term attacks throughout Europe, targeting sporting events, tourist sites, restaurants and transportation.”
Belgian prosecutor said that the police were after a man who is in a light-colored jacket and a hat.
He said that there are searches in various parts of the country adding that officials were able to find an explosive device that had nails, chemical products and an IS flag in the Schaerbeek area of Brussels.
The Schaerbeek raid is reportedly been possible after a taxi driver tipped-off the authorities after he drove the three suspected bombers to the airport.
The explosions took place in succession at 08:00 local with victims being hit by the second explosion as they tried to escape the first.
A separate bomb was later on found at the scene and destroyed in controlled detonation.
One hour later after the airport blast, a different explosion happened in the Maelbeek metro station close to EU HQ.
The cause of the bomb is yet to be confirmed but IS have also claimed responsibility of the attack.
The overall death toll of the two attacks has been put to be over 30 with 20 killed at the metro station and 11 at the airport.
More than 250 people have suffered from injuries with most being severe.
Condolences and solidarity messages have been sent by world leaders to Belgian.
US president Barack Obama said that the blasts were “outrageous attacks against innocent people” while the 28 EU leaders – in a joint statement – said the bombings were an “attack on our open, democratic society”.
The UN Syria envoy, Staffan de Mistura, said the attacks showed the urgent need to “extinguish the fire of war” in Syria so the focus could turn to IS.
