Earlier, social network users vividly discussed the image of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and a young man of Arab appearance. Some of them claimed that the man looked very much like the Brussels suicide bomber Laachraoui.
In fact, the man turned out to be 18-year-old Anas Mondamani, who has been sheltered by a German family and currently lives in Berlin. His identity was revealed by a publisher and author of the website Kerstin Hack, a friend of the family.
Two explosions took place at the international airport of Brussels on Tuesday morning. A third explosion occurred later in the subway station Maelbeek. As a result of the terrorist attacks 31 people were killed and another 340 injured.
