At least four bombs have been confirmed this morning at Brussels airport and subway, one of which was a suicide bomber. In addition, three additional suicide belts with bombs ready for use found at the airport.
Details are still coming in, but police say this may be in connection to a Belgian crackdown on several terrorist suspects beginning last week.
People are reporting that in addition to the bombs, shots were fired and there was yelling in Arabic as the attacks were happening.
The army has taken control of the city, and people are reporting it looks like a war zone.
The first explosions Tuesday morning hit the city’s main airport outside a security check. According to Reuters, at least 10 people have reportedly been killed although estimates in social media range as high as 17, and dozens were wounded after two blasts ripped through Zaventem airport. Brussels police said that Zaventem’s great hall was targeted in the blast, but they couldn’t confirm the number of the victims in the attack. “There was an explosion, but we cannot say more,” a police spokesperson said.
“It was atrocious. The ceilings collapsed,” Zach Mouzoun, who arrived on a flight from Geneva about 10 minutes before the first blast, told BFM television. “There was blood everywhere, injured people, bags everywhere.”
