one of them has been linked to the paris attacks. the three were picked up in a taxi from an address where police later discovered signs of a bomb factory, explosives, chemicals, bags of nails. the shrapnel wounded 300 people at the airport and the metro station. at least 31 are dead. this is the second day of national mourning. the airport is closed to passengers till at least saturday. the subways are running on a limited schedule. and today a new worry. the main suspect from the november bombings and shootings in paris is due in a belgian court. sal la abdeslam was captured here last week after his fingerprints were found in an apartment rented by one of the brussels suicide bombers. >> his court appearance had been delayed over security fears here in belgium. there are still fears of the potential for follow-on attacks either here in this european capital or in another one as we get ever closer to the easter holiday.
and as you can see behind me, belgians have left the usual mementos we've seen after attacks around the world of terrorism and these mementos are going to linger. this has been a spot of gathering for people to stand in solidarity and defiance in the face of the latest terror attack. kendis, reena. >> aaron, what are police most concerned about when it comes to the terror threat there in belgium? >> reporter: i think there are two things. one the urgent manhunt under way for someone who may know about the attacks themselves on tuesday and perhaps their direct connection to the paris attacks and whether there are any more operatives out there. they've been searching for one person they believe but they've also continued to search for others at least somewhat linked to the paris attacks. so all of these hunts are quite urgent because as the belgians have found in the bomb factory, there are signs around this city that other attacks may have been
in the offing. >> abc's aaron katersky joining us from brussels city and a country that is observing an official day of mourning there. aaron, thank you. we're going to continue with brussels. because there's been some confusion about an american couple who remain unaccounted for in brussels. justin and stephanie schultz were last seen at brussels international airport. they had just been visited by her mother who was returning home to kentucky. one of the blasts separated them but the state department had told their family they had been found and were being treated at a hospital when in actuality, they are still missing. >> well, a troubling report from the "associated press" quotes officials as saying that isis has trained at least 400 fighters to target europe in deadly waves of attacks. it says that those fighters have orders to choose the time, place and method to create maximum chaos. abc's brian ross has more. >> it's increasingly clear to
u.s. authorities that the deadly terror attack this week in brussels and last november in paris were the work of one interconnected isis cell based in belgium made of at least 16 terror recruits, 13 of them now dead, one under arrest. and two still being south. >> it's got more moving parts. it's got people attacking in different ways. it's a more resilient kind of terror cell i think. >> reporter: the culmination of more than a year of careful planning by isis central command in syria that allowed the cell to avoid detection for so long. >> they do train their people in the fundamentals of being a spy, of being a terrorist cell. fundamentals of secure communication. >> among those of documents ties to both paris and brussels is that suspected bomb maker, 24-year-old najim laachraoui who's weres were discovered in the brussels airport. authorities say they have found his dna and fingerprints at bomb factories that produced
explosives for both paris and brussels. authorities now believe that cell in brussels is out of people, out of explosives. but the concern remains about other terror cells across europe still covert and still actively plotting. brian ross, abc news, new york. >> this morning there are major new very manies in the cyberattack on a new york area dam. the justice department is expected to announce as soon as today a criminal indictment against seven iranian-backed hackers. it's believed the group is behind the computer intrusion of the small new york dam and dozens of u.s. banks. the indictment is expected to directly link the iranian government to the attacks. the governor of kansas has declared a state of emergency because of a rapidly spreading grass fire along the border with oklahoma. the fire has burned more than 100 square miles and closed roads. about a dozen homes have been evacuated. winds are strong. and the fire is still out of control. ranchers and farmers are worried.
>> it's the worst possible situation as far as wind. >> if they don't get this thing shut down pretty quick, it's going to rank right up there. >> smoke and ash from the wildfire is making the air unhealthy as far away as wichita about 0 miles away. authorities say parts of new mexico and northwest texas are also at risk for wildfires. >> and the strong winds in the southern plains are creating other problems for drivers. highway crews are having to remove loads of tumble weeds. they're even rolling in from the mesa onto the streets of albuquerque. one resident says it's the worst she's seen in a decade in ten years. and there's been a run on pitchforks at hardware stores, as well. and travel through the denver area is even worse. look at this. a spring blizzard closing major highways. the plows having trouble with the heavy blowing snow. the denver international airport reopened but many flights today still canceled. the full force of the blizzard hasn't reached wisconsin yet.
but the governor has already declared a state of emergency and activated the national guard. >> today's forecast, up to a foot of snow in green bay as the blizzard moves east. rain from the eastern great lakes to new england. rain in the pacific northwest. severe weather and a threat of tornadoes in the deep south. >> 40s in minneapolis and boston. 50s in great falls, montana, and portland. 60s in dallas and new york. 70s in atlanta and l.a. >> a california college student is recovering after a freak accident involving e cigarettes. the 20-year-old was skate boarding across the campus of orange coast college when two spare e cigarette batteries suddenly burst into flames in his pocket catching his pants on fire. he suffered burns to his thigh and groin before a friend came to his rescue. >> one of his friends tried to put out the fire with his shirt. trying to put out the fire so he doesn't get hurt. >> authorities say batteries can explode when they come into contact with other metals such as keys or coins but the
student's father says he had nothing else in his pocket. one other excuse to give up smoking i guess for some. >> good point. so this is, you can't make this stuff up. a flying saucer stolen from the ufo museum in roswell, new mexico has been found torn to pieces. >> surveillance video shows three men loading the model spaceship into a pickup truck early saturday, then driving off. the fiberglass and metal ufo was later discovered in a ditch, ripped apart and ultimately destroyed. >> so the flying saucer had been a fixture outside the museum for years but it was recently knocked off its mount in a snowstorm. do we really think those are humans getting the flying saucer? or they just came back for what they own? >> definitely not humans. >> nice theme. >> coming up in "the skinny," the tribute to a rap legend. not from a fellow celebrity but from a tv news track reporter. >> this is a good one. >> also ahead, the super hero scene stealer. we'll meet the actress playing
wonder woman in the batman versus superman movie. >> that's supposed to be a good movie, too. >> as we return to our top story, the security concerns amplified here in the u.s. after the terror attacks in belgium. you're watching "world news now." sarcasm. >> announcer: "world news now" weather brought to you by united health care. my 60's. i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i got a medicare supplement insurance plan.
