On Mar. 22, three explosions occurred in Brussels, Belgium. Two bombs went off at the airport in Zaventem during the morning rush hour, and a third at a downtown metro station near European Union buildings. Belgium immediately raised their terror levels to the maximum, and began searching for answers.
Authorities captured an image from security footage of three men that they believed to be to blame for the attacks. All three had dark hair and were pushing luggage carts through the airport. Officials did not immediately know their identities, but suspected they were suicide bombers. However, they continued to search for at least one surviving attacker. Thank goodness they did, and that they caught him!
