Seventy people are now confirmed dead from an Easter Sunday bombing that targeted Christians in Pakistan. And four more victims wounded in the Belgian bombings died over the weekend.

With the massive hunt intensifying for a Brussels terror suspect seen in a new video, and just moments before the airport explosion, ABC news is learning that another terror suspect, Faycal Cheffou has been released from custody after a judge ruled there was insufficient evidence for his arrest.

Cheffou has previously been arrested for trying to recruit refugees for Jihad, and this time, he was among the seven men arrested and charged for being connected to a terrorist group.

As police continue to hunt for terror suspects across Europe, there is more unrest in Belgium.

Right wing protesters clashed with police at the scene of the Brussels memorial.

They expressed anger against Belgian Muslims on Easter Sunday.

One demonstrator said, "Everyone that's not Belgian, because this is Belgium, if you don't want to live like us, go, you don't have to stay."

Meanwhile, In a new Isis inspired attack in Pakistan, more that 70 people were killed, and at least 300 othes were injured.

Most of the victims, were women and children.

Eyewitness Aman Inam said, "It was chaos. Everybody was crying. There were dead bodies."

It happened in a public park, also on Easter. A Taliban group that has supported Isis in the past is taking responsibility, claiming they deliberately targeted Christians.

In the meantime, ABC was told that the Brussels Airport which has been shut down since last Tuesday could finally open later this week.
