Bombings In Brussels

Not something you want to wake up to.

At least two explosions rocked the check-in zone of Brussels Airport Tuesday, killing and wounding several people, while another blast shook a metro station in the Belgian capital.

Officials raised the terror threat level, shut down all public transport in the city and advised locals to stay indoors as the crisis unfolded.

Federal police later confirmed that an explosion occurred at Maalbeck metro station, which is located near European Union institution buildings.

Passengers fled the airport’s departures hall after the first incident around 8 a.m. local time (3 a.m. ET).

So far no one or group has laid claim to the attacks.
