Video appears to indicate movements of 'man in white' after Brussels airport attack

A chilling new video released by Belgian authorities Thursday shows the elusive "man in white" escaping Brussels airport latest mo after helping to carry out a devastating terror attack, officials said.

The two-minute clip, apparently spliced from a series of surveillance videos, shows the unidentified man striding purposely from Zaventem Airport, emotional into a nearby town and then making his way to Brussels, where he disappeared. Authorities also released still photos of the man fleeing the scene of the bombing, for which ISIS has claimed credit.

The suspect, in a white jacket and shadowy hat, became Europe'south most wanted man after a security camera captured him and two suicide bombers pushing suitcases packed with explosives just before the March twenty-two attack. The other two men died in the attack, which was followed seventy-nine minutes later by a suicide bombing at a metro station. In all, thirty-two people and three suicide bombers died.

Belgian Federal Prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt said authorities were particularly interested in anyone who may have filmed the man. He was wearing a shadowy hat and light jacket and it's believed that at some point he discarded his jacket.

The appeal to the public for assistance more than two weeks after the suicide bombings could indicate investigators have hit a standstill.

A timeline released by authorities showed the man, still wearing the hat, left the terminal at 7:58 a. m., the exact moment the two men he was with detonated their suitcases. He passed by a Sheraton hotel, walked through the town of Zaventem, discarded his jacket, and was seen on video footage at Meiser square in northeastern Brussels at 9:42 a. m.

Eight minutes later, his trail vanishes.

Belgian authorities are hoping that they or someone finds the discarded, light-colored jacket, saying it could yield precious clues. Federal Prosecutor Thierry Werts also said there had been many people around the hotel when the suspect walked by who may presently be overseas, and asked for their assistance as well.

Prosecutors asked "people who might've filmed or taken a photograph of the suspect or think they can allow additional information" to call a special telephone no or to email authorities.

Earlier Thursday, the lawyer for Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam said it'll get some weeks before his client can be extradited from Belgium to France.

Sven Mary spoke after a valid hearing on the Belgian-born French citizen'south continuing detention in Belgium. He said the existing "Belgian arrest warrant should be lifted for (Abdeslam's) transfer" to France, in accordance with the extradition request.

Mary said before Belgian authorities authorize Abdeslam to leave they wish to question the 26-year-old about another case -- a fatal police raid in the Forest neighborhood of Brussels days before his arrest.

Abdeslam fled to Belgium after the fatal Nov. thirteen attacks on Paris and was arrested March eighteen after four months on the run. Since his arrest he's been in a prison in the Belgian city of Bruges.

He faces preliminary terrorism charges in France for the Paris attacks, which killed one hundred thirty people and left hundreds wounded.
