BRUSSELS, March 23. /TASS/. Brahim Bakraoui was one of the persons who carried out a terror attack at Brussels airport on Tuesday. He died during the attack while the identities of two more terrorists are being established, Belgium’s Federal Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw said on Wednesday.
Two blasts rocked Brussels airport on Tuesday morning, killing at least 31 persons and wounding several hundred others. The Belgian authorities have already said the blasts are a terror attack and announced the highest level of terrorist threat in the country. A third explosion occurred in the Brussels metro close to the EU institutions in the Belgian capital.
The terror act in the Brussels metro was committed by Brahim’s brother, Khalid Bakraoui, the federal prosecutor said.
The federal prosecutor didn’t confirm that Nazim Laachraoui had been detained.
The Belgian police found 15 kilograms of explosives in an apartment of suicide bombers in Brussels, the federal prosecutor said.
One of the Brussels terrorists left a message on a computer later found by public utility workers in a garbage bin, the federal prosecutor said.
"The last will of Brahim Bakraoui was in the notebook found in the garbage bin in the Schaerbeek community, he added.
The federal prosecutor rejected the reports that a Kalashnikov automatic rifle had been found in the airport terminal hit by the blasts.
"No weapons were found," he said.
Belgium’s TL TV Channel reported earlier that the computer thrown out in the Schaerbeek community had been found by garbage workers. They thought it was strange that the computer didn’t look old and was simply inserted into the garbage bin while Belgian legislation requires computer disposal through a special unit of the company for waste removal.
The vigilant garbage workers transferred the find to the police, which found correspondence in the computer among the persons linked with the Islamic State terrorist organization.
