BRUSSELS (AP) – Belgian state broadcaster RTBF has identified two of the attackers who targeted Brussels as brothers Khalid and Brahim Bakraoui.

The report Wednesday says the brothers were known to police for past crimes, but nothing relating to terrorism.

RTBF says Khalid El Bakraoui had rented an apartment raided by police last week in an operation that led authorities to top Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.
