The three men pictured above have been identified by Belgian authorities as suspects in the Tuesday bombings at  Zaventem airport in Brussels, the New York Times reports.

Reuters reports that the two men in dark coats "seem to have committed suicide attacks." Belgian authorities are actively searching the airport and surrounding neighborhoods for the third man in a light-colored jacket and a hat.

Brussels police posted a second photo of the suspect on the far right on Facebook along with a wanted notice: "The police are looking to identify this man. He is suspected of having committed the attack at Zaventem airport on Tuesday, 22 March 2016."

A government official told Reuters that the suspect "had been seen running away from the airport building." 

Police operations are still underway in several parts of the city, which remains on high alert following Tuesday's twin bombings at the airport and attack on a subway station near the headquarters of the European Union. The attacks left at least 30 dead and hundreds wounded.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks. Reuters reports that Belgian law enforcement "found a bomb and an Islamic State flag during a house search in the Brussels district of Schaebeek" in the aftermath of the attacks.
