One of the suicide attackers who blew himself up at the Brussels airport with a suitcase bomb was the suspected bomb-maker involved in November's terrorist attacks in Paris, Belgian officials confirmed on Friday, NBC News reported.
Najim Laachraoui, 24, was the bomber pictured on the left of a surveillance camera image captured before two blasts rocked the departures area on Tuesday, Belgium's federal prosecutor confirmed.
Laachraoui's DNA was found on a suicide belt at the Bataclan music venue in Paris that was targeted by the terrorists along with an explosive device at the Stade du France, the prosecutor said.
