KD/PG Sunday Edition

CBS2-Pittsburgh-11:30 a.m.

This Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m., on KDKA-TV’s “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – with KDKA-TV News Anchor Stacy Smith and David Shribman – Executive Editor of this Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

On this Easter Sunday morning broadcast – the aftermath, from the ISIS-sponsored bombing attack on Brussels. Belgium – last Tuesday — which killed at least 31-people, injured another 300, and also resulted in the deaths of three suicide bombers associated with what is being called the deadliest act of terrorism in Belgium’s history.

Two “nail” bombings took place at the Brussels Airport, a third explosion occurred at a metro train station, and a fourth bomb was also discovered at the airport, before it was triggered.

Who are the terrorists, where are they coming from, and why is it difficult for many European countries to share information with authorities, about them?

We’ll ask Michael Kenney, Ph.D. – Associate Professor of International Affairs, at the University of Pittsburgh’s Matthew B. Ridgway Center for International Security Studies – and Colin Clarke, Ph.D. – Associate Political Scientist at the RAND Corporation’s Pittsburgh campus, who is also affiliated with the Ridgway Center.

Please join Stacy Smith and David Shribman, for this important broadcast – Sunday morning at 11:30 a.m., on the “KD/PG Sunday Edition” – right after CBS’ “Face the Nation”, on KDKA-TV.
