BREAKING NEWS: At Least 23 Dead After ‘Suicide Bombers’ Attack American Airlines Check-In Desk At Brussels Airport

FIRST ATTACK: At least 13 people have died and dozens injured after two explosions rocked Brussels Airport in a terror attack this morningBrussels is under attack today after a series of bombings in the Belgian capital.

At 8am local time there were two explosions close to the American Airlines check-in desk in the city’s packed airport. Local media are reporting that 13 may be dead and 50 injured there and witnesses heard shouting in Arabic and gunfire before the ‘shockwave’ of two blasts, carried out by suicide bombers.

Firemen who entered the shattered building are said to have found a third unexploded device. Pictures show the terminal windows blown out and roof tiles littering the floor after falling from the ceiling from the force of the explosions.

At 9.19am a new explosion was heard at Maelbeek Metro station in the centre of Brussels – and at least ten are believed to have been killed. Maelbeek is the gateway to the EU Quarter of the city, which houses its main institutions.

The pavement outside is littered with injured commuters. Citizens are being warned to stay at home as the Belgian Government raised its security level to ‘maximum’ and sent soldiers onto the streets. The city was already high alert following the capture last Friday of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam, the world’s most-wanted man, in the Molenbeek neighbourhood of the city, known as Europe’s cradle of terrorism.Shocking: Injured passengers are covered in blood and dust after the explosions rocked the terminal building at Brussels AirportSECOND ATTACK: The image above is being used by the Belgian media who claim this is the damage caused by the bomb at the Maelbeek Metro station in central Brussels 79 minutes after the first attack.
