One of the attackers in the Brussels suicide bombings was deported last June from Turkey, which subsequently warned Belgium that he was a militant, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.

At least 31 people were killed in Tuesday's attacks. Belgium has named two brothers as Islamic State suicide bombers responsible, while another suspect is still on the run.

Speaking at a news conference, Erdogan said that the man was deported to the Netherlands at his own request and Turkey also notified Dutch authorities.
