At around 8:19am Brussels time, two explosions were heard in Zaventem Airport in Brussels. The explosions were confirmed to be caused by a suicide attacker, exploding around the American Airlines desk in the airport. Roughly 30-45 minutes following this suicide attack, another attack occurred at the Brussels Metro station close to the EU commission building. The EU commission building is understood to be on lockdown.

Reports have suggested multiple attacks occurred across a number of Metro stations, and all metro systems in Brussels have been closed. 

The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has offered the countries full support and is understood to be chairing an emergency COBRA meeting later today. The foreign secretary, Philip Hammond, has said that the government is tracking the scenario minute by minute and will offer full assistance to Brussels.

Reports have suggested the attacks are in retaliation to the recent arrest of Salah Abdeslam.

  • At the time of writing, there are 31 fatalities and 260 injured in both the airport and metro attacks combined.
