Prior to his death, Ibrahim had left a message on a laptop that had been dumped in a trashcan near where the cab driver had picked the men up. It read :

“I don’t know what to do, I am in a hurry. I am on the run. People are looking for me everywhere. And if I give myself up, I will end up in a cell”.

Belgian Federal Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw confirmed that ”15 kilograms of TATP – the substance containing concentrated hydrogen peroxide and acetone – was discovered at the house from which the Brussels attacks’ suspects left for the airport.

‘The third suspect, in a hat, is still on the run and his bomb did not explode. It contained the biggest explosive charge and there was great instability of the explosives.’

He also said the ”explosives used in the Brussels attacks were the same kind of explosives used in the London 7/7 attacks and the Paris carnage last year”.

Another key ISIS member of the Paris plot. Mohamed Belkaid, was killed in the raid at the safe house where the fourth explosive was found, and an Isil flag was found next to him. Two other members got away.
