Explosions heard at Brussels airport
The blasts happened during Tuesday’s morning rush hour.*
BRUSSELS (AP) — At least one person was killed when two explosions ripped through the departure hall at Brussels airport Tuesday, police said. All flights were canceled, arriving planes were being diverted and Belgium’s terror alert level was raised to maximum, officials said.
“One person has died and perhaps there are several more,” said a police official who spoke on condition of anonymity because the situation was developing.
The explosions hit at the middle of the busiest time at the airport, which serves the city that is the capital of the 28-nation European Union. NATO is also headquartered in the region.
Developing breaking news, this may be an attack or bombing on the airport; we will see how bad it may be; some stories call this indeed, worse than these early reports are saying.
