Tuesday's terror attacks in Brussels included two brothers, who authorities said blew themselves up in an airport and in a subway car.

A New York Times report looks at the trend of brothers committing acts of terror together. Here's a brief look at each instance:
  • Khalid and Ibrahim el-Bakraoui were allegedly part of the Brussels attacks on March 22, 2016. Police said Ibrahim was a suicide bomber at Brussels Airport, while Khalid blew himself up at the Maelbeek subway station.
  • Salah and Ibrahim Abdeslam were part of the Nov. 13, 2015 attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Ibrahim was a suicide bomber outside of a cafe and Salah escaped. Salah was arrested on March 18 in Brussels.
  • Chérif and Said Kouachi killed 12 people during an attack on the office of French satirical newspaper, Charlie Hebdo, on Jan. 7, 2015. They were killed by authorities two days later.
  • Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were the two bombers at the 2013 Boston Marathon on April 15. Tamerlan died in a police shootout, while Dzhokhar was captured and sentenced to death.
  • Mohammed and Abdelkader Merah are linked to the 2012 terror attacks in Toulouse and Montauban. Mohammed killed seven people from March 11 to 19 before he was killed by police on March 22. His brother was allegedly part of the plot.
  • Ali Imron, Amrozi, and Ali Ghufron were all part of the Oct. 12, 2002 bombing in Bali, Indonesia that killed 202 people. Ali Imron is serving a life sentence, while his two brothers were executed in 2008.
  • Hassan and Walid bin Attash are currently being held at Guantanamo Bay. Walid allegedly played a role in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, while Hassan is suspected of targeting the United States Navy.
  • Waleed and Wail al-Shehri participated in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. It is believed they stabbed two flight attendants on American Airlines flight 11 before it flew into the World Trade Center.
  • Nawaf and Salem al Hazmi were part of the group of hijackers that crashed American Airlines flight 77 into the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.
