Belgium's Prime Minister Charles Michel today pledged the government would "shed light" on the attacks as two ministers offered to resign after criticism of intelligence failures.

"I confirm I tendered my resignation," Interior Minister Jan Jambon was quoted as telling the Le Soir daily. "(Justice Minister Koen) Geens too. They were refused."



The move came after it emerged that the three bombers were known to police and that airport bomber Ibrahim El Bakraoui had been deported from Turkey as a "foreign terrorist fighter".
