Terror cells like the one that carried out the Brussels attacks are supported by Daesh's (ISIS) leadership in the Middle East, but are choosing themselves where and when to strike, experts say.Less than two years after it declared its "caliphate" in Syria and Iraq, Daesh appears to have set up a network of cells made up of European nationals drawn to its extremist cause.Daesh has been calling for attacks on the West since its emergence as the pre-eminent militant group.Berger said it was likely the cell behind the Brussels attacks was also involved in November's massacres that killed 130 people in Paris.The Brussels bombings came only four days after the arrest in Brussels of the last known surviving suspect in the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam.
