NBC News reported:

Two brothers were identified Wednesday as the suicide bombers behind the Brussels terror attacks as the search for an on-the-run suspect intensified.

Authorities said Khalid El Bakraoui, 27, blew himself up in the subway in the Belgian capital’s subway system while his 30-year-old sibling Ibrahim detonated a bomb at the city’s airport. Both had been convicted of violent crimes in the past and had links to one of the Paris attackers.

ISIS claimed responsibility for Tuesday’s trio of bombings, which killed more than 30 people and injured at least 260 others.

The Islamists screamed, “Allahu Akbar!” before blowing themselves up at the airport.
