There have been a total of three explosions in Brussels, Belgium today which have killed about 28 people, and left at least 55 injured.
Two of the explosions rocked the Zaventem Airport, Tuesday morning, with the third hitting a Maalbeek subway station 400 metres from European Union headquarters.
According to Aljazeera, the Belgian federal prosecutor has said that the attack on the airport was a suicide attack.
Belgian interior minister has raised the country’s terror alert to the highest level and told the public to stay wherever they are.
Local media say the airport blasts occurred near American Airlines counter, where hundreds of people were checking in. It was also reported that shots were fired before the explosions.
This is coming barely four days after prime suspect of last November’s attack on France, Salah Abdeslam was captured in Molenbeek.
