At least 21 people have been killed after an apparent suicide attack ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels and another blast hit a city metro station.
Via Sky News:
Shots were fired and Arabic shouted before the two airport bomb blasts, according to Belgian news agency Belga.
Maalbeek metro station was targeted in a separate attack during the morning rush hour.
Brussels fire brigade spokesman Pierre Meys said 11 people died in the twin blasts at Brussels airport, and at least 10 killed at the metro station explosion.
‘Most of the wounded have been evacuated. The scene is rather chaotic,’ he said.
Zach Mouzoun, who arrived at the airport on a flight from Geneva about 10 minutes before the first blast, told France’s BFMTV: ‘It was atrocious. The ceilings collapsed. There was blood everywhere, injured people, bags everywhere.
‘We were walking in the debris. It was a war scene.’
