The Belgian authorities identified two supsects -- Mohamed Abrinin, 31, and Najim Laachraoui, 24, who they said are accomplices of Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam.

Belgian federal prosecutors said the search of a home in the Brussels neighbourhood of Schaerbeek "led to the discovery of an explosive device containing among other things nails", Foxnews reported on Wednesday.

Investigators have also found chemical products and an Islamic State flag.

Two explosions in Brussels airport and one at a Metro station left 34 people killed and over 200 injured.
