Two suicide bombers who attacked the international airport in Brussels have been named by Belgian media as the brothers Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui.


 Brothers, Khalid and Brahim el-Bakraoui

The RTBF broadcaster said the pair were known to police. A third man pictured with them at the airport is still being sought.

Twin explosions at the airport and another at a metro station on Tuesday left about 34 dead and 250 wounded.

Belgium is observing three days of national mourning.

So-called Islamic State (IS) has said it was behind the attacks and warned that more would follow.

RTBF said the brothers were known to police and had criminal records.

The third member of the squad - now known as the 'Man in White' - was Najim Laachraoui.

Najim Laachraoui has left a suitcase bomb and walked out of the terminal moments before 14 died at 8am yesterday.
