Belgian police found a suicide note from one of the Brussels attacks suspects
Belgian Federal Police
Belgian national Ibrahim el Bakraoui, a suspect in the bombings who died in Tuesday's terror attacks, apparently wrote in French that he was in "a bad situation" and that if he did not act now he would end up in a prison cell.
The note may allude to the arrest of Saleh Abdeslam, a suspect in November's Paris attacks who was found and detained in Brussels last week after four months of evading capture. Abdeslam is believed to have played a role in organizing and planning the Brussels attacks prior to his arrest, authorities have said.
Police say they found 15 kilos of explosives of the TATP type, 150 liters of acetone, detonators full of nails and screws, plastic bags, ventilators, and several other bomb-making materials during their raids on Tuesday.
At least 31 people were reported killed and dozens more wounded after explosions ripped through Zaventem Airport and Maelbeek metro station in Brussels on Tuesday morning.
Police have not yet identified the third suspect - the man in the light jacket and hat on the right in a photo released by Belgian authorities - but say he is still on the run. His bag apparently contained the largest explosive, which did not go off and was detonated in a controlled explosion by police.
Reports emerged earlier this morning that the man in the hat had been captured alive, but those reports subsequently turned out to be inaccurate. A massive manhunt is underway for the third suspect and several other people possibly linked to the attacks, prosecutors said.
