No fewer than 23 persons have been confirmed dead and several others injured after 'suicide bombers' attack American Airlines check-in desk at Brussels Airport as second 'terror attack' hits Metro station near EU headquarters.
Witnesses described scenes 'like the apocalypse' with blood and 'dismembered bodies everywhere' after two blasts rocked the American Airlines check-in desk at Brussels Airport at 8am (7am GMT) in a suspected suicide bombing.
Around 90 minutes later, ten people are believed to have died when an explosion hit a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre in another suspected terror attack.
At the airport, shouts in Arabic were reportedly heard before the explosions which sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows, knocking roof tiles off the ceiling and sending terrified passengers running for their lives.
The explosions come just a day after the Belgium Interior Minister warned of possible revenge attacks after the arrest of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam in the city last week.
