"early today" starts right now. good morning everybody and thanks for joining us today. the intense man hunt in brussels continues to focus on the missing suspect. seen here wearing a hat and light colored coat. he was originally thought to be a bomb maker but he's been confirmed as the man on the left. he's one of the suicide attackers that airport. and in the middle, ibruham and his brother khaled was the suicide attacker on the metro. brusz brussels is the work of the same cell in the paris attacks. and what are you hearing there? >> reporter: good morning. the investigators are trying to figure out who that third person
4:02 am
was dark, a dark blue hat with big glasses. he's still on the loose and of course, war -- the authorities and the residents of brussels who are nevertheless defiant of a new terror attack. and you can see behind me there's some kind of shrine that the people built yesterday. they gather here to improvise some vigil memory of the victims and they dlu rew a lot of messages on the pavement and they were in memory, in solidarity with the victims families and in defiance of the face of terror. there was a big writing in the center of the square saying life here continues. saying that they are not being put away from the fear of a new terror attack. they're just continuing as normal.
4:03 am

4:04 am
and you have a lot of local administrative regions. in addition, they are overwhelmed. belgium has the highest proportion of foreign fighters who go off to syria, iraq and then come back. >> why is belgium becoming such a breeding ground for these extremists? >> great question. just with respect to the other question. i think there's a problem with prioritizing investigations. even if you're overwhelmed, you can prioritize and if other governments tell you suspected terrorists are backing your country, you should make them on the top echelon of who you're looking at. about 40/50 years a go, many immigrants came to work in the mining industry. when that collapsed, they were
4:05 am
and that enabled folks to do was to go in and radicalize them. there was a group called sharia for belgium, which is based off of a british model and they radicalized quite a few people and they were perhaps the biggest feeders to isis. they weren't isis but they radicalized thoem em and the leader, a 32-year-old belgium was just convicted last year and sentenced to 12 years in prison. >> thank you so much for joining us today. we appreciate your insight. >> the belgium terror attacks have the presidential candidates saying the president is not doing enough. and president obama defended his strategy. andrea mitchell reports. >> reporter: the president called isis vicious killers but not a threat to the u.s.

4:07 am
american muslims like criminals, it's wrong, counterproductive, it's dangerous. >> in this political season, it seems nothing is off the talk as bars between the two top rivals dives deeper into the personal. and ted cruz and donald trump each crying foul on the other. and here more on the increasingly nasty rivalry. >> reporter: this racy antitrump ad meant to turn off utah mormons now turning attention to the tone of the gop race. meet milania trump, it says, your next first lady or you could support ted cruz on tuesday. >> that was completely inappropriate. >> reporter: the image was created by an outside stop trump group but that didn't stop trump himself that he would quote spill the beans about wife heidi. >> there are a lot of things that donald trump and his

in reality. >> reporter: and cruz tweeting back with the #classless. >> heidi is way out of his league. >> reporter: trump accuse ing cruz of lifting lines. >> because sidney ellen wade is way out of your league. >> reporter: is anything off limits anymore? >> i think it's always nasty but this year is extraordinarily nasty. >> reporter: liz mayor created the ad featuring the former model. >> reporter: i'm there are lines we shouldn't cross. >> we shouldn't attack each other's spouses, or children. >> reporter: hoping to set the rules in a race that doesn't seem to have any. and in the there's this.
