At least 34 people have been killed and 170 injured after coordinated bomb attacks on the main airport and the Metro system in Brussels.
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel has condemned the attacks, as ‘blind, violent and cowardly.’
This follows the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, suspected of plotting November’s Paris atrocity from the notorious Molenbeek suburb of Brussels.
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said:
We are at war. In Europe we have been subjected to acts of war for several months.
Belgian foreign minister Didier Reynders said: ‘We fear that people are still at large.’
David Cameron said the countries of Europe need to ‘stand together against these appalling terrorists and make sure they can never win.’
There are reports that a suicide bomber struck first near the American Airlines desk at Brussels airport.
The explosion on the Metro was near European Union buildings and the US embassy.
