Suspect wanted for Brussels attacks still on the run, prosecutor says

A suspect being sought in the terrorist attack on the Brussels airport is still on the run, Belgian federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw says, contradicting earlier media reports.

One of the suicide bomber has been identified through his fingerprints as Brahim El Bakraoui, a 29-year-old Belgian national. A second suicide bomber still has to be identified, Van Leeuw says.

"The third suspect, wearing a light-coloured jacket and a hat, is on the run," he adds. "He dropped off a big bag, then left before the explosions."
