    Brussels Zaventem airport rocked by two explosions

    Two explosions have been reported at Zaventem airport in Brussels.

    Images on social media from the scene showed smoke rising from one of the terminal buildings. The cause of the explosions is unknown.

    Some reports from the scene speak of casualties but this has not been confirmed.

    The blasts come four days after the capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the Paris attacks in November.

    Belgian media say the airport is being evacuated. It has been closed to flights. Rail transport to the facility has been halted.

    How many more will they kill? When will it be enough? They are slaughtering people everyday. Who are these sick people?

    There are rumours that there are explosions at other locations. With the recent development, I fear for the safety of Europe.

    Hmm, no claims of responsibility from ISIS or any other Islamic extremists so far, so all I can say so right now is that whoever did it had better enjoy sunlight while they can, because with chances are they'll end up in a hole underground.

    A suicide bomber blew himself up at Brussels airport on Tuesday killing at least 11 people and a further blast tore through a rush-hour metro train in the capital shortly afterwards, claiming 10 lives, according to public broadcaster VRT.

    A witness said he heard shouts in Arabic shortly before two blasts struck the packed airport departure lounge. Pictures on social media showed smoke rising from the terminal building through shattered windows and passengers fleeing down a slipway, some still hauling their bags.

    26 dead 130+ injured according to CNN. These ISIS guys are serious, France, Turkey, now Belgium. It is almost impossible to prevent all attacks, I am sure the Belgian Police have prevented many attacks, unfortunately this attack resulted in a lot of casualties.
