US Teen Admits To Brussels Airport Cyberattack

A 14-year-old Pittsburgh resident failed to hack Zaventem airport just hours after last year's terrorist attacks that killed 32.

A 14-year-old American boy has been linked to the unsuccessful cyberattack on Brussels airport shortly after the alleged ISIS suicide bombings on March 22, 2016, which killed 32 people, BBC News reports, quoting Belgian prosecutors. No terrorist motives were discovered during preliminary investigations.

The minor from Pittsburgh was questioned by the FBI at the request of Belgian authorities. He reportedly confessed to attempting to hack Zaventem airport's website and computer system on March 22-23.

"From the investigation and the first analyses of the seized hardware it appeared that there were no terrorist motives," the prosecutors stated.
