US Identifies Third Brussels Airport Bomber

Brussels terror attacks suspects
US authorities know the identity of the third Brussels airport bomber who is believed to be on the run.
The man, who appears in a CCTV image wearing a white jacket and a black hat, is on the US terror watch list.
The information has been confirmed twice by a Sky News source.
The two brothers involved in the Brussels attacks, Ibrahim and Khalid Bakraoui, were also on the US terror watch list, according to Reuters.
It comes comes after Belgium's terror watch status was lowered from the highest to the second highest level.
The decision was taken just two days after the suicide bomb attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station in Brussels which have left 31 people dead and 270 injured.
Despite lowering the terror threat level from the maximum of four to three, the authorities say the situation remains "exceptional" and "grave" and that another attack is "likely and possible".
The alert level is down to three despite reports that authorities suspect a second bomber was involved in the deadly attack on Maalbeek station who could also be on the run.
Meanwhile, the chief suspect in the Paris attacks has claimed he "didn't know" about the Brussels terror plot, according to his lawyer.
The denial by Salah Abdeslam comes amid mounting evidence of strong links between the extremists that carried out the Brussels bombings and those behind the atrocities in the French capital last November.
It has been suggested the Brussels attacks had been due to be carried out over Easter but were brought forward in case Abdeslam revealed details following his arrest.
Investigators believe he and two others, including a man detained with him in the Belgian capital last Friday, planned to use guns and bombs to cause mass casualties in Brussels, according to public broadcaster VRT.
