The Times of Israel's Raoul Wootliff and Stuart Winer report that dozens have been killed and many, many more injured as suicide bombings occurred at both the airport in Brussels, Belgium, as well as the city's Maalbeek metro station:
Pierre Meys, a spokesman for Brussels fire brigade, said 11 people died in a suicide attack at Brussels Airport. Officials said “an enormous explosion” at Maalbeek metro station killed at least 15 others.
Meys stressed that the death toll at the airport was “initial,” warning that a “false ceiling collapsed with lots of rubble and so there could still be more victims.”
Belgian authorities defined the explosions as terror attacks and the public transport system in the city was shut down in the wake of the blasts.
