There has been a horrific radical Islamic terror attack in Brussels involving three explosions, 2 at the American Airlines desk in Zaventem Airport and 1 in the city Metro.

The Daily Mail has some photos from both attack sites here. A warning: they are graphic images.

According to Sky News:

At least 34 people have been killed after a terrorist suicide attack ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels and another blast hit a city metro station. Shots were fired and Arabic shouted before the two airport bombing, according to Belgian news agency Belga.

Maalbeek metro station was targeted in a separate attack during the morning rush hour. An image showed an empty pushchair surrounded by debris from an explosion at the airport, while children could be heard screaming after the underground blast.

… Two people were arrested by armed police at the city’s Noord railway station hours later – as officials said they feared “people are still at large”.

Details are continuing to develop, but the attack comes days after Salah Abdeslam (the main fugitive from the Islamic terror attack in Paris) was arrested by Belgian authorities.
