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.

    Peace has been taken away from the world! We are now in a new era all putting to the coming of end of time!
    Only Jesus is the hope of eternal salvation! Accept him today and reign with him in glory when he comes again to take away the saints!

    Some say the arrest of Saleh Abdesalam triggered these attacks. May God help us
