One of Brussels suicide bombers had written a will, prosecutor says

Brahim El Bakraoui, one of two brothers who participated in the terrorist attacks in Brussels, had written a will, Belgian federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw says.

The document was found on a computer that investigators recovered from a trash bin.

El Bakraoui wrote that "he was in haste, not knowing what to do, being sought everywhere, not being in security anymore and that if he drags this out he risks to end up ... in a [prison] cell," Van Leeuw says.
