At least 13 people have reportedly been killed and dozens severely injured after two explosions ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels in an apparent suicide attack.
Shots were fired and Arabic shouted before the bomb blasts, according to Belgian news agency Belga, as a third explosion hit Maalbeek metro station in the city during the morning rush hour.
The country’s public broadcaster VRT said there were up to 13 people dead and a further 35 wounded at the airport – and at least 10 commuters killed in the underground blast.
Zach Mouzoun, who arrived 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.”
Video and images on social media showed smoke rising from an airport building and shattered windows.
