    A computer allegedly belonged to a member of the Daesh terrorist group was found near recent attacks spots in Brussels.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — A computer with information related to the Daesh terorists was found on a street in the Belgian capital after the recent attacks on the city's airport and a metro station, local media reported Wednesday.

    According to LaLibre.be news portal, employees of the cleaning company Bruxelles Proprete spotted the device with contents described as "interesting" for the investigation into Tuesday's attacks.

    The computer has been handed over to the Belgian Federal Police's Counter-Terrorism and SWAT unit.

    On Tuesday, two suicide blasts hit the departures hall of Brussels international airport and an explosion shook a subway carriage in Maelbeek station, close to the EU institutions, killing at least 31 people and injuring 260.

    Daesh, outlawed in a number of countries, including Russia, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
