Brussels Under Attack – Airport & Metro Bombed

Belgian police issued a wanted notice for a suspect in the Brussels airport bombing, one of three explosions claimed by Islamic State that rocked the capital Tuesday, killing at least 30 people.

The Brussels mayor said at least 20 people were killed and 55 injured in an explosion just moments later at the at the Maelbeek subway station near the main headquarters of the European Union.  EU personnel have been told to either stay in their offices or at home.

The Associated Press is reporting that several people have been injured in an explosion at a subway station near the European Union’s main headquarters. The subway blast happened an hour after at least one person was killed and several more injured in two explosions at the city’s international airport.

The earlier blasts occurred in the airport’s departure hall, shattering the building’s windows. The cause of the explosions have not been determined. The Belga news agency says shots were fired and words shouted in Arabic before the blasts occurred.

All flights in and out of the airport have been cancelled, and all of Brussels’ subway stations have been shutdown.
