Perpetrators of the Brussels attacks may have used Acetone peroxide (TATP) as the explosive in their bombs, Belgian newspaper De Standaard reported.
TATP was the same explosive used by Daesh terrorists in Paris, along with other attacks perpetrated by the group. Traces of the material were found, linked to investigations of alleged Daesh leader in the region, Salah Abdeslam.
"It looks like that the terrorists have again used the TATP explosive, the same kind as in the attacks in Paris," Belgian newspaper De Standaard reported.
At least 34 people were killed and more than 200 were injured by a series of terrorist attacks at the Brussels airport and a subway station adjacent to several European Union headquarters buildings.
