Images of the cartoon character Tintin crying have spread across social media following the devastating terror attacks in Brussels.

Tintin is a famous cartoon character who was created by Georges Remi, a Belgian cartoonist. The Adventures of Tintin was written by Remi using his pen name, Herge, and has come to be known as a national hero in Belgium and a symbol of Brussels.

Tintin’s image has been shared all over Twitter and Instagram to pay tribute to the victims of the attacks.
