An explosion has now been reported at a Brussels metro station close to EU buildings.

Meanwhile, dozens have been carried on stretchers out of Brussels Zaventem Airport.


Pictures and new alerts are flowing of a number of explosions at Brussels Zaventem Airport.  At least one report is saying it was next to the American Airlines checking counter says the BBC.

Images on Twitter and other social media channels show blown out glass windows, and television is reporting plumes of smoke.

Niels Caignau, a Swissport employee, told Flemish broadcaster VRT, via BBC: “I was on a break and heard and felt a big explosion – we have from here a view over the departure hall and saw a plume of smoke come out.

“The windows are completely shattered. People went outside in shock. It doesn’t look good.”
