Suicide bombers set off two explosions at the Brussels Airport around 8:00 a.m. local time, killing 13, injuring several more, and sending dozens running for their lives in hopes of finding safety. About an hour later, another explosion occurred at a nearby Metro station, killing at least 20 more and causing a scene of chaos as civilians tried to maneuver their way through a pitch black underground train system.

The threat level in Belgium has been increased to Level 4, and there is the anticipation that another attack could occur as the day continues. The country’s Prime Minister has urged people to stay where they are, and assured that “border controls will be increased” and the military will be reinforced at several sites. That should be music to Donald Trump‘s ears, as the 69-year-old Republican presidential candidate wasted in no time in demanding America close its borders. Other presidential candidates, including Hillary Clinton, 68, offered their own responses to this tragedy.
All arriving and departing flights at the airport have been suspended, and travel on bus and train has been halted as order is restored. As of now, the total death and injury count cannot be confirmed, but it stands at at least 34 dead and at least 170 injured.
This horrifying attack comes just four days after Paris terror attack suspect Salah Abdeslam was captured by police in Brussels. Detonating equipment was found at the ISIS member’s safe house when he was arrested, but it cannot be confirmed yet if the new attack is connected to this or the Islamic state. Keep watching above for updates on this tragic situation.
