Belgium’s Prime Minister Charles Michel and federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw held a press conference on the attacks in Brussels. Van Leeuw confirmed two of the three men seen in the surveillance photo at the airport are “likely” (deceased) suicide bombers and authorities are actively looking for the third man photographed.
Major cities across the United States have increased security at transit hubs in wake of the attacks in Belgium. The Department of Homeland Security will also announce additional federal plans to tighten security.

UPDATE: 1 July, 2014 United States eliminated. Belgium 2 – United States 1

Great game! – Extra time! – Heartbreaking loss! – Belgium wins. Thank you and good night! Tim Howard played an amazing game as Goalkeeper, making 15 saves and keeping the U.S. in it until extra time. Too many opportunities for Belgium and too many missed opportunities for the United States. It was a good run, but now the U.S. is out of the competition. Congratulations Belgium. Good luck against Argentina.

CHEERS!
