'Paris attacks bombmaker' identified as Brussels airport killer


The suspected bombmaker in the Paris terror attacks was one of two suicide bombers who blew themselves up in Brussels airport.

Najim Laachraoui, 24, was previously believed to be on the run after dumping a bag containing a bomb that failed to detonate and fleeing the airport.

But officials said his DNA has been verified as that of one of the suicide bombers - meaning the identity of the infamous "man in white" remains a mystery as security services continue to search for him.

The revelation adds weight to the theory that both attacks, which killed more than 150 people and injured hundreds more, are linked to the same Islamic State (IS) cell.
