The race is on:
Authorities now think there was a second man involved in the bombing
at the Brussels train station. That brings the total number of men who carried out the airport-and-subway attacks to five. We know three died in the airport blast. We've seen the image of one suspect who may be on the run. And now, there's this guy, seen in surveillance holding a large bag. It all points to a much bigger terror network than suspected. And cops are playing catch-up, hoping there isn't another attack before they figure things out.

" she said. Ouch.
Mysteries of the deep:
It's taken a couple of years, but the Indian Ocean is finally giving up its MH370 secrets
. Two pieces of debris found in Mozambique last month are "highly likely" to be from the wreckage
of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight, officials said today. The paint and other markings match the airline. The parts are consistent with the only missing 777. It's not hard to connect the dots. But are we any closer to finding the main wreckage? No one knows.
