One of the Brussels suicide bomber was 'caught in Turkey last June'
One of the Brussels attackers was deported from Turkey in 2015, and Belgium subsequently ignored a warning that the man was a militant.
That is according to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan who on Wednesday said: "One of Brussels attackers was caught in Gaziantep in June 2015 and deported. We reported the deportation to the Belgian authorities on July 14, 2015, with a deportation notice. Despite our warning that this person was a foreign terrorist fighter, Belgian authorities couldn't find a link to terrorism."
Erdogan's office later identified the man as Ibrahim El Bakraoui, one of the two brothers named by Belgium as responsible for the attacks that killed at least 34 people in Brussels on Tuesday.
The bombings have since been claimed by the so-called Islamic State terrorist group.
