The police identified some of the criminals which were likely to be relevant to the Paris attack last year. The authority noticed that the network behind the Paris attack was larger than initially thought.
Salah Abdeslam, a suspect who was deemed to have taken a key role in Paris attack was arrested in Brussels last Friday. This terror may represent a revenge of ISIS. However, it was still expected the next target would be Brussels following Paris, even if without this arrest, because it was clarified that terrorists had entered Paris through Brussels. Also, Brussel is the capital of the EU. The police must have been aware of these factors. Nonetheless, the attack was not prevented. It means an asymmetric war against terrorists is hard to be controllable.
Some building including Eiffel Tower in Paris, Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, and Trevi Fountain in Rome were illuminated to express a deep regret for the victims.

I visited Brussels twice. It was a beautiful city. I pray for the victims. And we never permit such an evil act, regardless of the background of the offenders.
