Khalid el-Bakraoui, one of the brothers who are suspected of bombing the airport and a subway station in Brussels on Tuesday, was the subject of an Interpol “red notice,” an alert to police forces around the world saying that he was wanted in Belgium on terrorism charges.

Excerpts from the notice that were posted publicly by Interpol say he was born on Jan. 12, 1989, that he spoke French and Arabic, and that he had dual Belgian and Bahamian nationality. He has been wanted since last August.

There does not appear to be a red notice posted on the Interpol website for his brother, Ibrahim.
