6:01 pm
welcome back to our special edition of "world news tonight" of the terror attacks in brussels, and tonight, the casualties mounting, after terror attacks at the airport and on a subway car in the heart of that city. raids across the city, all day long. police with weapons drawn on a rooftop there. this after powerful blasts at the airport. right where families had dropped off loved ones, waiting in line for their tickets. an explosion on a subway car during the morning rush hour. a scene of chaos, right there in the dark. abc's alex marquardt in brussels this evening, taking us through the attacks, and the new focus at this hour on the surveillance video now. >> reporter: tonight, brussels under siege. an all-out search for the man in the hat, a suspected terrorist, seen walking through belgium's main airport. the two men in black believed to be his accomplices. the attackers hit at the height of rush hour. around 8:00 a.m., two blasts. suicide bombers in the departure hall outside the security checkpoint. the terminal filled with smoke
6:02 pm
and the sound of screams. travelers lying top of each other on the floor. this man holding a little girl. >> stay down. stay down. >> reporter: the bombs so powerful that ceilings collapsed. the wounded treated amid the rubble. >> you have to go outside. >> reporter: outside, smoke pouring out of shattered windows as people raced away. >> there we were when it exploded behind us. if we were at the -- at the check-in, we exploded, too. >> reporter: at least ten dead here, and more than 100 injured, including nine americans. mormon missionaries richard norby, joseph empey and mason wells from utah, and an american air force lieutenant colonel traveling back home with his family. but the horror was still unfolding. 9:11 am, just an hour after the airport explosion, seven miles away another suicide bomb goes off near the offices of the european union.
6:03 pm
this time in a packed metro car, as it was leaving the station. in the dark tunnel, passengers climbed out of train cars. the terrified screams of a child. the path to safety down the dimly-lit tracks. at least 21 people dead. more than 100 wounded here, too. and at 4:19 p.m., eight hours after the terror began, isis claimed responsibility. brussels tonight , a city gripped by fear and uncertainty. >> and alex marquardt with us live again this half hour from brussels. alex, you told us at 6:30, the city largely shut down tonight. what do we know about the subway systems there, and the airport, of course, which had been locked down today for quite some time. >> reporter: david, the belgian authorities are trying as hard as they can to get the public transportation system back up and running. the metro system tonight still shut down. the airport tomorrow will still be shut down. as will schools all across brussels. parents keeping their kids at home. david?
6:04 pm
>> alex marquardt leading off this half hour, as well. alex, thank you. as we reported earlier, the terror attacks in brussels may have been triggered by the capture of the most wanted man in europe. we showed you heavily-armed it police nabbing the final suspect in the paris terror attacks, wounding him in the raid, and then interrogating him. abc's chief foreign correspondent terry moran showing us this half hour how easy it is to get through the city. he didn't find much security and was able to get right to the center of brussels. he's back with us live tonight. and terry, this has been one of the chief criticisms there, that it's very easy to get in and out of that city and in and out of that country. >> reporter: it is easy to get around this city, even given these attacks today, and getting in and out of this country, into europe, without borders, is also very, very easy. the problem for belgium is that they are way behind the terrorists. there are so many safehouses and depots and networks that hid salah abdeslam, who was arrested last friday, as you point out, for four months, right under the
6:05 pm
noses of belgian authorities, that it shows just how far behind the authorities here are. they know they've got their work cut out for them. they've toughened the laws. they're trying to crack down, but right now, people here have a much more urgent question, given the weakness of the government -- what's coming next? david? >> all right, terry moran with us live from belgium tonight. terry, thank you. and among the survivors i spoke with today, a pregnant woman who was in the airport, her husband lying on top of her, moments after the explosions. i spoke with her a short time ago. >> we heard an explosion, and we thought something was going on and the debris started falling on us. >> pieces of the ceiling were falling down on you? >> yeah, i mean, the debris was falling on us from the roof, we thought the roof was going to collapse. >> you're pregnant. this is your first pregnancy. and it was your husband's instinct to try to protect you from the falling debris? >> yeah, so, he immediately ran to me and he grabbed me and he kind of tried to cover me, because in his head, we discussed later, he thought that
6:06 pm
there's probably still gunmen around. >> can you describe for me the scene inside for the other passengers who were there? how terrifying this was? >> yeah, i'm -- i'm -- i was very, very shocked, because in a really strange way, i was extremely calm and alert, and, like, it was an out of body experience, because everybody was running in different directions, each single person, running in different directions, sobbing. >> we're really glad that you're okay and that that baby is okay. >> thank you so much. it is really a relief, and our heart really goes out to all the other people who have been injured, even slightly. >> sneha talking with us just a short time ago, early in her pregnancy. she and her husband, okay tonight. we're going to turn to the americans injured in the attacks in brussels. three mormon missionaries with from utah among them. they were there at the airport to see someone off, and tonight, all three are at hospitals. one of them, already surviving a close call at another terror attack, the boston bombings.
6:07 pm
abc's clayton sandell now with the americans injured in belgium. >> reporter: those three mormon missionaries seriously hurt in the blast, richard norby, joseph empey and mason wells, are from utah. they were at the airport this morning to see off a fellow missionary, also injured, 20-year-old fanny clain of france. wells is 19. he was burned and hit by shrapnel, but able to call his parents today from his hospital bed. >> but your eyes are okay? >> yeah, but my right hand is also kind of badly burned. >> he was extremely close to the blast. words can't describe the joy and the relief that we felt to hear his voice. >> reporter: empey is 20. his injuries include second and third degree burns. norby is 66 and attends this church in utah. remarkably, this is the third terror attack for mason wells. he was only a block away from the boston marathon bombing. wells was also in france last november when terrorists attacked paris.
6:08 pm
>> i just have to think that he was prepared in some way to go through this. >> reporter: and david, all nine injured americans are expected to survive. the u.s. state department says so far, they don't believe any americans have been killed, but they are still trying to account for all u.s. citizens and government employees. david? >> clayton sandell with us this half hour. clayton, thank you. and next, to the high anxiety here at home and a more visible show of force tonight. in times square here in new york city, armed police officers standing guard at this hour. abc's chief justice correspondent pierre thomas now on the lone wolves. we asked the fbi, how many of them are being monitored right now here in the u.s.? >> reporter: right now, the fbi continues surveillance on dozens of isis sympathizers thought most likely to act out on short notice without command and control from the group. most targeting isis supporters radicalized online through social media. for those suspects receiving most scrutiny, 24-hour surveillance, often requiring dozens of agents. >> they may actually go and knock on their door and shake the bushes, so to speak, to make
6:09 pm
sure that they know that they are being watched. >> reporter: and while officials in the u.s. don't believe there are sophisticated terror cells like those in europe, over the past two years alone, at least 103 americans have been charged with trying to join isis, or suspected of supporting the group in some way. of those identified, 82 are men, 16 women. half, 52 suspects, are aged 18 to 25. ten teenagers. just recently in san bernardino, that killer couple allegedly swore allegiance to isis before gunning down 14 people. authorities' worst fear? the couple was hiding in plain sight. as one of the killer's coworkers told our david muir. >> if somebody had asked you before yesterday, if he was a friend -- >> i believe so. >> reporter: so, tonight, u.s. law enforcement officials are pouring over the recent intelligence, looking for any sign of a threat here at home. and in some cases, some of the suspects of the fbi's radar may have agents knocking on their doors to warn them they're being watched. david?
6:10 pm
>> pierre thomas, live in our washington bureau tonight. pierre, thank you. >> i want to bring in matt olsen, former director of the national counterterrorism center, who is also with us live tonight. and you heard what pierre reported right there. for 24-hour surveillance only of some of these lone wolves, some of the suspects they're watching around the united states, it could take perhaps dozens of agents. it almost sounds overwhelming. >> well, it is. what we don't have here is the same problem they have in europe. they have thousands of foreign fighters who have gone to syria and returned to those countries, which really is overwhelming for the security services in places like brussels and paris. >> so, what do you do, matt, in the meantime, if you can't have 24-hour surveillance, which we all know is the reality here, how do you keep these attacks from happening? you know, many of these suspects, they believe, were right there in the neighborhoods that had been searched in belgium. >> you know, the key, david, is good intelligence. you need to have surveillance, you need to have informants. the best way to stop an attack like this is to know about it before it happens. it's very difficult to protect
6:11 pm
vulnerable targets like a train station. >> just difficult pictures to look at there from the subway, too, today. matt, our thanks to you, as well, as we continue with these bombings at the brussels airport, it rattled nerves here at home. at the orlando airport today, this plane arriving from brussels. we told you earlier, it was met by police cars. everyone going through an extra security check, because of where that jet was coming from. but today's bombings taking place outside the secure area, in brussels, where families were leaving off their loved ones and saying good-bye. they were simply lining up for their tickets. and so, abc's david kerley on what, if anything, can be done here. >> reporter: tonight, part of a terminal at denver evacuated, a security scare. in orlando, that jet from brussels isolated when it landed. all this, the anxiety after the terrorist attacks. on motorcycles, armed patrol and four-legged bomb sniffers, airports all across the u.s. responded to the brussels attacks with more police. but the bombings in a terminal, just like these, are leaving some travelers worried. >> we had a little bit of
6:12 pm
trepidation about traveling today. >> it's scary. it's very scary. >> reporter: with the airport shut down, the airspace over brussels cleared, as jets diverted and flights were canceled. this is a completely unsecured area, always has been, right? >> completely unsecured. >> reporter: before the security checkpoints here in the u.s., terminals are considered soft targets, with only some police presence. so, is this a risk we have to live with? >> we have clearly entered a period of new normal, where we have to be concerned about a much broader range o of attacks. >> reporter: homeland security announced today that tsa will tighten security, but tsa is not responsible for the overall security at airports, just these checkpoints. interestingly, the head of tsa was actually landing in brussels around the time of the explosions this morning, david. he was taken to a secure area. >> that's just incredible. and, of course, the larger question looming is, what can you do at ticket counters?
6:13 pm
you can't secure everything at the airport. david, thank you for that report tonight. and, of course, isis taking responsibility for the terror attacks today, as the military battle against isis rages on. u.s. and coalition forces taking on the islamic state at its roots. american fighter jets taking off around the clock, targeting sites in four countries now. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz just back from the region, and she shows us tonight what she saw first-hand. >> reporter: the air strikes have been constant. from the sea, from the land. >> we're out here to take out isis, so, it doesn't matter where they're at, we're going to eliminate that threat. >> reporter: surveillance drones and cold war-era spy planes patrolling the skies to help locate targets. the ground war, too, has been more effective. isis losing 40% of its territory, says the pentagon, but there are estimates that 30,000 isis fighters are still spread throughout the region. >> thank you, sir, have a safe flight. >> reporter: we tracked one night make from start to finish
6:14 pm
aboard the uss truman. f-18s flying over syria to destroy an oil pipeline, a revenue source for isis. >> three, two, one. >> reporter: we met with the pilots on the flight line seconds after returning safely to the deck. >> it was not exactly routine. but we got the results we wanted. >> reporter: the u.s. says intelligence has improved in the military fight, especially with more u.s. troops backing up iraqi troops. and, david, while the pentagon says that isis is weaker and on the defensive, the pentagon is the first to say that defeating isis will take more than military might. david? >> martha raddatz, back from the region tonight. martha, thank you. and there is still much more ahead on this special hour-long edition of "world news tonight." after the terror attacks in brussels today, the terror investigation here at home, after san bernardino. how did the terror suspects plan their attack overseas, and how did they communicate right here at home? there are new developments tonight involving the iphone at the center of the investigation

6:19 pm
and back here in the u.s., investigators continue to struggle to unravel the iphone used by san bernardino shooter syed farook. tonight, in a bold about-face, the justice department now says it may not need apple after all, putting the brakes on its landmark court battle in the 11th hour, and telling the judge, "an outside party demonstrated to the fbi this past weekend a possible method for unlocking the phone." apple has fought the government's attempts to force it to weaken iphone security so investigators can break in. >> we have a responsibility to help you protect your data and protect your privacy. >> reporter: but it's not just apple. there are a number of encrypted third party messages apps known to be used by terrorists, and law enforcement worldwide is just struggling to keep pace. david? >> neal karlinsky from california tonight. neal, thank you. when we come back, the race
