Exclusive Reports: Explosions at Brussels Airport, Metro Station Kill 23 People, Dozens More Wounded

Three explosions killed at least 23 people at Brussels Airport and a metro station in the Belgian capital on Tuesday morning, Belgian media reported, citing officials. A suicide attack and a bomb caused the explosions at Brussels Airport, Belgium public broadcaster VRT reported, killing at least 13 people and wounding dozens more. There were also one or several blasts at a metro station in Brussels’ city center, killing another 10 people, Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad reported. The blasts in Brussels, effectively Europe’s capital where the European Commission is based, come four months after Islamic terrorist attacks killed 130 people in Paris. Some of the terrorists lived in Brussels, where police investigators arrested a suspect last Friday. Shortly before the explosions were heard at Brussels’ Zaventem Airport, one or several people shouted something in Arabic, Belgian news agency Belga reported, citing eye witnesses. The airport is 11 kilometers north-east of Brussels and last year had traffic of 23 million passengers.   Picture source: AP
