A string of explosions rocked Brussels airport and a city metro station on Tuesday, killing at least 13 people, according to media reports, as Belgium raised its terror threat to the maximum level.
Two explosions targeted the main hall of Zaventem Airport at around 8:00 am. More than a dozen people were lying on the pavement outside the station, being treated by emergency service for facial wounds.
There were chaotic scenes at the airport as passengers fled in panic, with a thick plume of smoke rising from the main terminal building.

The blasts triggered a transport shutdown, with all flights halted in and out of the airport on Brussels' northwest outskirts and the city's metro system suspended.
Jean-Pierre Herman embraced his wife Tankrat Paui Tran, who he had just gone to collect from the airport after her flight from Thailand, as he described the scene.
A third blast hit the Maalbeek metro station, near the European Union's main buildings, just as commuters were making their way to work in rush hour. TV images showed black smoke billowing from the station entrance.

The Telegraph: Brussels explosions: 34 killed and 151 wounded in two attacks as terrorists 'remain at large'
I don't know how it can be claimed the terrorists remain at large? For all we know they could be among the rising victim count. Contradictory reporting below- a kalishnikov and a dead attacker
Kalashnikov found next to dead attacker
Belgian public broadcaster VRT is reporting that police have found a kalashnikov assault rifle next to a dead attacker at Brussels Airport.
Talk of nail bombs being used... Same as in Turkey recently.
Same types of bombs were employed in Syria
Talk of ISIS cells?????? Though ISIS has not claimed responsibility talking head states
And now Hillary Clinton is on campaigning- I kid you not she is campaigning on this
news program- Today nbc? In fact Hillary used the term "Europe Whole and Free" Boy that's a meme! And one I've written about "Toward a Europe Whole & Free" Via NATO global dominance
Updates on Brussel continued:
Police raids under way in Brussels in connection with places in Brussels following deadly blasts killing at least 26, public broadcaster RTBF reported on Tuesday.
There is a video purporting to be the CCTV showing the suicide bomber in Brussels It's from the attack in Russia 2011
Armed police arrest two men but more suspects are on the run as it's revealed security services already have CCTV of bombers.Wrong video employed
Brussels attacks: Video purporting to show Zaventem Airport explosion was shot in 2011. The first video is the CCTV purporting to show the Brussels Airport explosions and the second is of the 2011 bomb attack at Domodedovo Airport in Russia CCTV purporting to show the deadly Brussels Airport explosions appears to be fake. The footage resembles video of the moment a bomb attack took place at Domodedovo Airport in Russia in 2011.video making the rounds today compared to 2011- Obviously the war mongering media is muddying the waters already... so far no CCTV video released to confirm what actually happened- 11:26 am est
The video from the 2011 bombing in Russia is embedded in the blog posting linked below:
Belfast Telegraph: Islamic State claims responsibility for bomb blasts on Belgian capital
The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attacks on Brussels
The image provided by Belgian Police is not proof of a terror attack or 'suicide bombing'
We don't know if this image is from the correct airport?
We don't know what date this picture was taken?
It's a meaningless image with no context, save for the one claimed by "authority"
|this pictures proves nothing|
Go back to the bombing in Turkey and look at the video:
Man acting strangely....kaboom
