10:00 am
on the run. that's the man you see here in white. his identity though is still enknoe unknown to police officials. sources tell nbc news the man spotlighted here is nagim, believed he died at the airport and being a bomb maker linked to the paris attacks back in november. he blew himself up at the airport while his brother blew himself up in the city subway system. but as the hours go by, we are learning more about their plans and an expert tells nbc news they spied on a top nuclear researcher and hoped to build a so-called dirty bomb. the man is a researcher at the city of brussels. as this intense manhunt continues, there are questions whether or not there could be more suspects still on the run. belgian media reported the three suspects had at least one accomplice on the loose and nbc news could not independently
10:01 am
confirm that report. flights in and out of brussels particularly from the main airport here are now suspended until sunday. the death toll stands at 31 but officials tell nbc that this is a temporary number and holding a national minute of silence and singing a song familiar to people in the united states. we shall overcome. >> as this nation continues to mourn, one man is thankful to be alive.
10:02 am
>> i was the first to see these horrific pictures and burned an bloodied passengers coming out of the smoke and then i flew back to berlin and i am myself not harmed at all. >> we have our team all over brussels covering the latest developments from different angles and we begin with nbc correspondent bill neely. i understand in the last couple of hours, you've been following this investigation and spoke to a police in brussels. what are they telling you about this? >> reporte >> it was a remarkably frank interview saying honestly, we don't know how many people we're looking for. we don't know how many people are in this cell. i was pressing him about the man in the white jacket from the airport and reporting that there was a second suspect in the metro seen on cctv carrying a heavy bag and he wouldn't confirm that, but he was saying we simply don't know how many
10:03 am
there are. he clearly also was bristling at the criticism of the belgian police and the belgian intelligence services from abroad. he said as if they think this is easy. i think the belgian police are struggling. i think this is a much more complex and deadlier plot than they ever understood. and i think they're finding it difficult and clearly, 48 hours, more than 48 hours on, they have not found, for example, the man in the white jacket. >> in terms of some of the individuals they have already identified, in particular, the brothers we're getting this report they may have been spying on a top belgian nuclear researcher with the hopes of perhaps developing some kind of plot. what more have we learned about whether that seems to be a credible plot? >> the facts are after the paris attacks is that there was a raid on a flat in which they amazingly they found a video and it was ten hours of a camera
10:04 am
trained on a house. the police then discovered in the house lived a nuclear researcher at one of belgium's top nuclear facilities. there is, at the minute, no evidence to connect the tape with the brothers. there is no indication, no proof of when that video was filmed. either last year or maybe sometime distant in the past. now, we have, you know, it's the great nightmare that the terrorists, al qaeda, isis now would get their hands on nuclear materials and be able to make a dirty bomb that would make the events here in brussels look like, i hate to say it, but child's play because of the number of casualties. that's everyone's nightmare but there is no actual evidence that these brothers have that intention, that in fact, there was a plot. there is just this video. but that alone is intriguing. >> we know also that because they're still looking for that man in the white jacket that they believe somebody is still at large and after the paris
10:05 am
attacks after salah abdeslam ran away, that shed light on the fact this cell is bigger than anticipated. do you get a sense they're concerned of an imminent attack? the fact this man in the white jacket is still on the run? >> what they are certain of the that there is a network and that the man in the white jacket is probably being sheltered by whom they don't know and where they are and where they came from and sometimes they can't pin it on the people involved in the brussels plot. you mentioned salah abdeslam, the important development on him today he had initially said he was going to fight extradition to france and set off the court hearing and he wanted to make his case and interesting he denied having any prior knowledge of these attacks.
10:06 am
the police have a different view. said had they not arrested him, there's little question abdeslam would have been part of the brussels and it was his arrest that precipitated his plot and thought they were going to be arrested and broken so they decided to go ahead with their plans to bomb brufrls. >> thank you for that. msnbc terrorist analyst in our studio in new york. let's talk about why it's so difficult to track down this suspect. as we were hearing, he certainly must have accomplices in a network here oerperating in brussels. why do you think they're having a hard time tracking him down? >> with the evidence of the post-paris attacks and of course, the paris raids as well as belgium, it appears there was not a sleeper cell. this was more of a transnational
10:07 am
active network. it's much bigger than a cell. it was active. it was plotting to conduct the number of terrorist activities and even the tatp explosives found in the raids, i mean, they could have caused a lot more damage. the evidence is suggesting that more plots were being cooked and more plans were under way to strike additional targets and so it appears that authorities acted fast. it was not just as fast as we would have hoped for. >> are we seeing a new tactic by isis reporting that the brothers may have spied on a nuclear researcher? do you think that signals a departure, the change in the tactics of isis? >> there's been little evidence to confirm that just yet, but just from the signs that we have today is that, you know, indeed they were looking at obtaining some sort of, you know, knowh-hw
10:08 am
to build a dirty bomb of sorts, that would have built on potentially him wanting to build something like that and this would bring the group so much notoriety that it not only infiltrated the west but able to carry out major attacks, much bigger than attacking soft targets and potentially nuclear facilities. that would raise the terror alert level all across europe an potentially around the world based on that. that would give the group so much notoriety and i think that's what those guys may have been trying to do. >> there's another question that rises out of these latest attacks. it seems to be a pattern, not necessarily coincidental that a lot of these attacks have had the elements that siblings were involved. how does this fold into recruitment and how do you think countries may combat this? >> absolutely. we've seen siblings engage in terror attacks.
10:09 am
you know, multiple sets of them. we see it in the kouachi brothers and abdeslam brother and found himself in france and see it in the tsarnaev brothers to attack the boston marathon and the story keeps unfolding. the idea of finding this peer support environment that's really, you know, it creates a bigger level of trust between operatives than just trusting some sort of operative, finding that trust at home, somebody you've known all of your life. it creates that bigger bond and reaffirming the ideology over and over again. it's among those we did not see previously. >> terror analyst joining us from new york. appreciate your insights. nbc's kelly o'donnell is at one of the local hospitals. i know that kelly, you've been talking to people as they leave. there are a lot of heartbreaking stories. what are you hearing from the folks you've been talking?
10:10 am
>> reporter: ayman, we've had a couple of opportunities to see people who survived the blast with injuries and being released today. they've been hospitalized for two days at the end of the business day here in brussels and this is one of the main trauma hospitals and they received patients from the metro which is just two miles away about. so this was a close high level care facility for those victims. in this case, there are not americans who were hospitalized here but even through the issues of language and so forth, it is unmistakable they've been a traumatic and difficult event. moments ago spoke to a man from brazil, to portuguese is his native language and spoke to us in french but filled with tears with an injury to his leg and just met him moments ago and earlier, we met a man who told us his name was pierre and he was at the metro and went through an ordeal and anxious to be able to go home to his family. you'll see in this short video clip what he's been through.
10:11 am
>> at this hospital, there are four victims in intensive care but more broadly because so many of those who were injured are being treated at hospitals around the area, there are 61 patients still in intensive care. there are four in a coma who have not been able to be identified because they can't communicate with the medical teams and did not have identification with them. so it is still a very tenuous situation for those patients and a lot of recovery ahead.
10:12 am
ayman? >> thank you very much. nbc's kelly o'donnell live for us there in the hospital in brussels. joining me now is nbc's erica hill. erica, i know that as the community and society gets back to work, there's concerns about security. has security at the metro stations improved or is there a visible difference following these attacks? >> reporter: that's exactly the question we posted for a lot of people this morning, ayman around 7:30 or 8:30 to see what rush hour would be like and we went to one of the busiest metro stations in town near the european commission and right away as soon as we got there, we saw three large army trucks. when we attempted to go down and shoot in the metro, we were told clearly we were not to be shooting down here and could not shoot the searches. there were at least, i counted, six soldiers or military personnel down in the metro with two or three police officers with them. they were there as soon as they came down with the stairs and
10:13 am
closed off the escalator to filter the traffic a little bit more down the steps and before you could get close to a ticket booth, everyone was being searched. everyone out of the metro to ask them what their journeys were like, they noted not as many were stopping at the stations. almost everyone said it was a more somber mood on the trains this morning. many of them though were resilient and resolved and ready to go on with their days and we met a man from new jersey and sean was working in brussels for three and a half years. he told me it's upsetting and it's concerning but unfortunately, it's part of life. here's a little more of what he told me. >> it's aggravating that we all have to feel like this, that these guys make us feel this way. it's a shame. trying to explain that to your children. that's the tough part. me as adults don't understand this. it's hard to explain to children.
10:14 am
just do your best. >> sean has a 10-year-old daughter. he said he and his wife let her ask the questions and doing their best to answer them. but as he pointed out, everyone is trying to make sense of this and statement, try to move forward with their lives. >> a new reality for people in brussels. when we come back live from brussels, what it takes to turn a teen into a terrorist. how can they turn the tide? i'll take you into a neighborhood here h belgi in be answer that question. donald trump, his solution for getting rid of isis. stay with us. a heart attack doesn't care if you run everyday,

10:17 am
we're back live now in
10:18 am
brussels, belgium, as we continue to bring you breaking news in the terror attacks here. i had a chance to go t to villavort. it's unique because it's one of the towns in belgium part of the solution as well as part of the problem. villavort the highest of fighters that travel to join militant groups recycle isilike part of the solution. i asked a parent with teenagers and young adults, said three main problems into why he thinks young men are so vulnerable to recruitment to terrorism and the ideology. among them, socioeconomic disenfranchisement to led them they're being discriminated in the job market that makes them vulnerable and isolated and insolent from the rest of the country and believe there's a sense of islamophobia further alienating them from the broader
10:19 am
communities. they try to address the issues not just for their community but for europe at large. let's bring in former u.s. ambassador to the united nations and new mexico governor bill richardson. let's talk about how the terror threat that europe faces is different from the threat in the united states. >> reporter: well, the main difference is that it appears in the united states, our law enforcement, our intelligence, we have a strategy. we have a unified effort. it seems in europe, although what we need to do is strengthen our alliances with nato on intelligence and security cooperation, that they're not sharing intelligence among each other in the countries. they're not putting priority on finding ways to compartmentalize their attacks with terrorism. the big difference, the third is
10:20 am
that we're far away from the networks that right now seem to be the strongest and that are operating if euron europe. those are the main differences but the answer is strengthen our alliances with the europeans, with nato right now. not diminish them. some politicians are suggesting. secondly, find ways to intensify the air attack on isis and then lastly, empower local muslim american communities in the united states to fight this radicalization. >> you talked about that network, the network of operators that isis has deployed, if you will. well, the associated press reported by some estimates isis trained at least 400 fighters to target europe in deadly waves. i'm curious to get your thoughts on a potential threat with its borders, with its diverse communities.
10:21 am
>> first, put money into law enforcement. second, improve coordination. without naming any, some don't share intelligence with their neighbors. this has to improve. third, in countries like belgium, it seems that there are so many law enforcement entities doing the same thing. they need to improve coordination. but what is needed is the united states and europe cooperating more funding-wise. it can't just be military forces but more intensive surveillance, intelligence, coordination, and most importantly, finding ways that there's more cooperation across the board. >> governor richardson, i wanted to ask you about the optics of president obama's tango in argentina last night. a headline in one of the closest allies in the daily mail today
10:22 am
read obama dances while brussels burns and that follows republican criticism of the president that he attended a baseball game during his trip to cuba and not head home immediately after tuesday's attacks in brussels. what do you make of that? >> well, it's politics. the president is engaging in foreign policy. his main responsibility, opening in cuba and very important nation, argentina, a new president in argentina. you know, he made an appropriate statement on the terrorist issue. we're enhancing our cooperation with nato. but, you know, paul, the political season is ripe right now. i see the republicans are talking about carpet bombing ted cruz. totally insane idea. isis instead of strategic air bombing. targeting muslim american communities in the united states when muslim american communities should be at the vanguard. they cooperate with law
10:23 am
enforcement. and then lastly, you know, we need to be united in the fight against terrorism and that is working with our nato allies. not like donald trump wants to do, dismantle nato and de-emphasize it at a time when we need to increase our cooperation. >> it was a pleasure to talk to you. thank you for your time. >> thank you. still to come, we're going to shift our focus to politics. the republican race heating up, as you can imagine, and as trump and ted cruz and john casic continue their fight to try to win wisconsin and the war of words reignites between the billionaire businessmen and the texas senator. new tweets today about each other's wives. this while donald trump reveals he won't rule out going nuclear, yes, going nuclear against isis. much more to come right here on msnbc. the future belongs to the fast. and to help you accelerate, we've created a new company.

10:27 am
we understand it's unbelievable that trump has so much fans. >> it's quite unbelievable that he has so much people with him. people who listen to him. people who agree with him. it's quite, for us, belgiubelgi it's shocking. >> that was nbc's chris cillizza spe , crhris jansing, about the rac. it's the relative attractiveness. trump retweeted this picture comparing the looks of the two candidates wives. cruz responded via twitter, donald, real men don't attack women. your wife is lovely and heidi is the love of my life.
10:28 am
>> you were asked about whether you would rule out using tactical nuclear weapons against isis. would you rule that out or is that something you contemplate? >> i'd be very late compared to my opponents that are running. >> so you would rule in the possibility of using nuclear weapons against isis. >> i'm never going to rule anything out and even if i felt, i wouldn't want to tell you that because at a minimum, i want them to think maybe we would use it. >> both controversial remarks come as wisconsin's april 5th is a big test for the stop trump forces. previously said it was the beginning of a 100 day campaign for republican leaders opposed to donald trump. however, a win by cruz may only delay an eventual trump nomination. senator lindsey graham appeared to sum up the frustration of many establishment leaders with
10:29 am
a tepid explanation of his endorsement of ted cruz. >> how can you raise money for ted cruz when you don't believe he wouldn't be that good of a president? >> i think he's a republican. i think he's a conservative. i think donald trump is a con man. i think he would destroy the republican party. i have differences with ted cruz that are well known, but i think we share the same political dna and at the end of the day, i think he's a reliable republican conservative and mr. trump is not. john kasich would be the best nominee but he doesn't have a chance. >> all right. let's bring in nbc's political editor kerry dan live from washington. thanks for joining us, kerry. i think the question on everyone's mind right now, is this twitter war over the wives showing any signs of dying down? >> we saw a burst of energy on the twitter war with fox's megyn kelly retweeting trump's comments with her input being, seriously? question mark. a reminder of those to megyn kelly over the way he's spoken
10:30 am
about women in the past. here's the dangerous territory. we looked back at nbc news "wall street journal" poll found half of republican primary voters women can't imagine themselves supporting donald trump. that's about 10 points higher than for republican men. and among all women overall, this is an amazing number, 70% of all women overall have a negative vision or a negative approval rating for donald trump. so clearly, by talking about the relative attractiveness of these two wives, he may be sort of encouraging or riling up supporters who already like him who see this as more plain talk but among women sensitive, this could be dangerous for him. he already has a problem with republican women and voters overall and he may certainly be fanning the flames with these continued kments. >> let's talk about the substance of the primaries particularly in wisconsin which is going into the polls on april 5th. why does that april 5th primary
10:31 am
play a critical role in the effort to stop donald trump? >> there's probably two reasons. both the math and the ongoing narrative in the republican nomination race. donald trump is still chipping away getting to the 1237 number he has to get of dell galts going into the convention having the majority of the delegates. it's a big question mark whether or not he's going to get there. he needs about 54% of the remaining delegates in these contests to get to that marker and wisconsin is the next big contest. and it's also important for ted cruz in the sense that wisconsin is a proportional state. not one of the big win or take all, whoever comes with a huge chunk of delegates. they will divide up the number of delegates but a win or close to win for ted cruz would certainly be symbolic sign for those who are opposing donald trump that there is still time to maybe block that nomination if donald trump wins big there and especially if he performs well with some of the voters that may km out in a general
10:32 am
election for donald trump, maybe those disaffected white voters especially in wisconsin who either have voted in the past or in a mixture of both the democratic and republican parties. if he performs well with them, it's a sobering sign for the stop trump crowd that he is still steam rolling towards that number he would need to go into cleveland going very strong. >> kerry, let's talk about one of the issues that has been a result of this particular terrorist attack in brussels with both donald trump and ted cruz. having some very harsh, very negative comments about muslims in the wake of the brussels attacks. do you see those comments making the establishment leaders of the republican party uncomfortable that their choice is essentially now between one of these two candidates? >> well, this is adding fuel to the fire that's exist in a sense. with paul ryan, an explicit call for civility and yes, the harshness of rhetoric has been concerning to terrorism experts
10:33 am
and to some in the republican establishment. that said, the trying to appear strong is something that specifically trump supporters have wanted the see from their candidate and him, the clip you play earlier about him suggesting to use nuclear weapons. they may not care about the specifics of what that would entail or mean from a larger foreign policy perspective but him showing that he is going to be very, very, very strong on this issue and appeal to supporters and ted cruz is clearly following suit with some of the comments he's made about islam as well. >> live for us from our washington bureau. thank you very much for that, kerry. next, we're going to turn back to the latest here in brussels, belgium. as we speak, a manhunt is still under way for at least one suspected terror attacker believed to be on the run. stay with us. go, go, go, go, go, go...

10:37 am
welcome back everyone. i am ayman live from belgigiube. brussels. a massive manhunt. this is seen before the attack in the airport. the officials appealing for help. authorities believe he fled before the attack. so far, he has not been identified. in the meantime, there are new details about the two brothers identified as suicide bombers. one at the airport. one on the subway train and expert tells nbc news the brothers spied on a top nuclear researcher and hoped to build a so-called dirty bomb. now, authorities have also said the brothers helped facilitate the paris attacks drawing a link between those two tragedies and also today, there was a court hearing for the suspect in the paris attacks who was finally captured in belgium last friday. his attorney said salah abdeslam
10:38 am
is not told about the attacks and will not fight extradition to france. joining me now is foreign editor for the daily beast and msnbc contributor chris dickey and political senior correspondent ryan. thank you both for joining us. if i can begin with you. it's a surprise for many to see salah abdeslam indicate he was going to fight extradition to france but now after the attacks in brussels, accepting it. >> yes. so i think he is a very confused individual, obviously, and the belgians have not really had a clear strategy in how they handle him. you can imagine the turmoil that's going on in his head and the lawyer who's a prominent lawyer who's essentially staged this in a very, very prominent way. he hasn't been a discreet lawyer at all and you have to wonder what advice he's been receiving and then of course, it's all a gamble at the end of the day. the belgians have looked at some
10:39 am
points like a soft touch. you could see why he would go down that route, first and foremost, but a change of tactics where the lawyers said he's not cooperating like in the beginning but not surprised that he changes it. >> he said his client did not know about the brussels attacks and a, i'm curious, do you believe that? do you think that's the case given the fact he was very closely associated with some of these individuals and also, what can officials do to get him to talk if anything? >> i'm not sure they could get him to talk very much now. i'm sure that's one of the reasons he was worried. when he decided he wanted to stay in belgium, he could make out like he was giving them information or a lot of things going on. i don't think he knew these attacks were going to happen as soon as they happened. i think he was stalling. and basically hoping that if anything happened, it wouldn't happen in a way that would jeopardize him and now totally screwed in belgium and not any
10:40 am
simple thiympathy here. this guy is identified in the minds of the belgium people with the slaughter of people in the airport. he's not better off in france but he knows he inevitably was going to go to france anyway. >> is there any difference in the type of justice seen in france compared to here regardless of what the actual outcome is but in terms of processes? where is he better off? >> he was going to go to france anyway. just hoping he would get a break or maybe cut some kind of deal but he's not going to be able to do that now and the french, they're very tough and very tough interrogators. i don't mean physically tough but they know the game and his background very well. they're not going to give him an inch. >> quickly, do you see information he could provide to authorities or reveal? >> i don't see what would be in his advantage to do that. what he could reveal is how the plot was put together.
10:41 am
he could reveal some of the layers of the onion of this big terror cell that's been operating out of brussels. >> thank you very much. insights on that. always a pleasure to have you guys with us. brussels is beginning to return to its normal way of life today as belgians are still mourning the loss of their friends and neighbors. many are still asking how suspects like abdeslam were able to live in molenbeek. olivia? >> reporter: ayman, as you know now, belgium has a curious power structure to the government. i spoke with the mayor of this neighborhood with a civic authority and then the local police she works with but anything related to terrorism is the responsibility of the federal police. so there's lots of inefficiency. a fair amount of overlap and plenty of finger pointing. i started the conversation with how the community in molenbeek is coping in the wake of the
10:42 am
attacks. >> the communities, it's sad, of course. with what happened, first, in paris and then now in brussels. also anxious. anxious about what will happen the next days. >> several suspects in the paris and brussels attacks do call this neighborhood that you're the mayor of home. did you have any idea they were here under your nose for the last four months? >> they were very well organized. >> and did you hear anything? did you hear people talking or saying anything about people living here? >> absolutely nothing. >> so there was a list of 80 names of people who live with your systematic auspect and tie terrorism. anything to link these people? >> i think they do their best but the radical movement and the terrorism is very new phenomenon
10:43 am
for belgium. >> have you identified people that you think are sympathetic to terrorists? >> well, my police collect information but the investigation is a duty, responsibility, of the further. not of the local plils. police. >> are they doing enough to put a stop to it? >> with abdeslam, the main suspect in the paris attacks who turns out was living here, do you get the feeling he was able to walk around? could he come out to the market? could people protect him? >> no. i don't think so. >> but his mom lives here. >> yes. his mom. that's where the authorities find him. abdeslam's mom lives around here. have you spoken with her? >> no.
10:44 am
in front of the city. >> reporter: here, you can see people paying tribute with an adorable little girl with what appears to be her father in memory of the victims of this week's attack. the mayor telling me if anything good does come out of this, and finally people wake up to the fact she has a problem over in m molenbeek and she's been trying to get this across. ayman? >> msnbc's olivia. thank you for that. home grown terrorist. a former white house and state department official. you're watching "msnbc live" from brussels. a heart attack doesn't care if you run everyday,
10:45 am
