BRUSSELS (AP/KDKA) – Belgian authorities say that a U.S. youth in Pittsburgh tried to hack into the Brussels airport computer system and disable it the night after the March 22 attacks that killed 32 people.

The federal prosecutor’s office said in a statement Thursday that at its request, the FBI interrogated the 14-year-old Pittsburgh boy and said he confessed. The statement said the hacking attempt was unsuccessful and stressed that “it appeared there were no terrorist motives” for the cyber attacks.

The statement goes on to say the teen “is not radicalized” and that he told himself it was “the right time to carry out the attack.”
