A wave of bombings that killed at least 30 people in Brussels was carried out by Isis militants, the group has claimed.
In a statement released through one of its propaganda outlets, the so-called Islamic State said “explosive belts and devices” were used to massacre passengers checking in at Brussels Airport and on a Metro train.
“Islamic State fighters opened fire inside Zaventem Airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maalbeek Metro station,” a spokesperson said.
The group claimed that the attacks left more than 230 dead and wounded, although Belgian authorities put the figure slightly lower at at least 31 killed and under 200 injured.
