 Belgian authorities were searching Wednesday for a top suspect in the country’s deadliest attacks in decades, as the European Union’s capital awoke under guard and with limited public transport after 34 were killed in bombings on the Brussels airport and a subway station.

Police conducted raids into the night and circulated a photo of three men seen in the airport suspected of involvement in Tuesday’s attacks.

Belgian state broadcaster RTBF has identified two of the attackers as brothers Khalid and Brahim Bakraoui. They are believed to have blown themselves up in the attacks.

The third man is at large and has not been identified.

The report Wednesday says the brothers were known to police for past crimes, but nothing relating to terrorism. RTBF says Khalid El Bakraoui had rented an apartment which was raided by police last week in an operation that led authorities to top Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.

Last week, Belgian police said they were hunting for a suspected Abdeslam accomplice, Najim Laachraoui. He is believed to have made the suicide vests used in the November attacks in Paris, in which 130 people were killed, according to a French police official who said Laachraoui’s DNA was found on all of them and in a Brussels apartment where they were made.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is continuing.

The airport and several Brussels metro stations remain closed Wednesday. Security forces stood guard around the neighborhood housing headquarters of EU institutions, as nervous Brussels residents began returning to school and work under a misty rain.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The AMAQ news agency said, “Islamic State fighters carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices on Tuesday, targeting the airport and the metro station in the centre of the Belgian capital Brussels.”

Belgian Prime Minister, Charles Michel, had told reporters, “We feared terrorist attacks, and that has now happened.”

Belgian federal Prosecutor, Frederic Van Leeuw, on Tuesday, also said that it was too soon to know exactly how many people died in the bombings.

According to CNN, Belgian state broadcaster, RTBF, citing emergency services, reported 20 dead at the Maelbeek metro station and 14 more killed at Brussels’ international airport.

After the explosions, Belgian authorities hit the streets looking for those responsible for the carnage and who might launch more attacks.

 

Meanwhile, Buhari, on Tuesday, joined world leaders in condemning the attacks.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President commiserated with Prime Minister Charles Michel and Belgians over the loss of lives in the attacks.

34 killed

The statement read in part, “President Buhari believes that the appalling attack on Brussels reinforces the need for greater international cooperation to effectively confront and destroy global terrorism and its perpetrators.

“The President assures the global community that under his leadership, Nigeria will continue to work with other countries to ensure that terrorism never triumphs over free, peaceful and law-abiding nations and people of the world.

“He wishes the more than 100 persons injured in the attacks a speedy recovery.”

Also, Obama, who spoke in Cuba, said there was need for international cooperation to fight terrorism.

Obama said, “We must be together regardless of nationality or race or faith in fighting against the scourge of terrorism. We can and we will defeat those who threaten the safety and security of people all around the world.”

Mikel set to quit Chelsea for Chinese club

mikel_obi2Nigeria International and Chelsea midfielder Mikel Obi is to quit the London club for Chinese club as you are reading this.

Fujiipop information has it that  Mikel Obi is considering leaving the club for the Chinese Super League in the summer.

A number of Blues stars have recently been targeted by wealthy clubs in China.

Ramires left Chelsea to join Jiangsu Suning for £25m in January, while the club rejected offers for Oscar and Radamel Falcao. And the London Evening Standard on Tuesday claimed Chinese Super League clubs have now turned their attention to Mikel.

Jiangsu and Shanghai SIPG, who are coached by former England manager Sven Goran Eriksen, have both shown an interest in the Nigeria international, who is said to be considering his options.

Mikel, who has been at Stamford Bridge for a decade, has become a regular under interim boss Guus Hiddink and has missed just three games since the Dutchman replaced Jose Mourinho.

The 28-year-old is Chelsea’s second longest-serving player behind captain John Terry, and has won 10 major trophies with the Blues.

But his position in the starting XI could come under threat when, as expected, Antonio Conte arrives at the club in the summer.
