Belgian ministers offer resignations over attacks

BRUSSELS - Belgium's interior and justice ministers offered their resignations over the Brussels attacks but they were rejected by Prime Minister Charles Michel, Belgian media said on Thursday.
Interior Minister Jan Jambon and Justice Minister Koen Geens were not immediately available for comment.
Belgian authorities are facing embarrassment after Turkey said on Wednesday that last year Ankara expelled back to Europe Ibrahim El Bakraoui, one of the suicide bombers who carried out the attacks on Tuesday, and warned Belgium he was a militant.
"Belgium ignored our warning that this person is a foreign fighter," President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.
