By Arutz Sheva Staff
The Zaventem airport in Brussels was rocked by at least two explosions early on Tuesday morning. At least 13 people were killed in the attack on Zaventem airport, with some 40 people wounded.
A ceiling in the airport collapsed in the wake of the explosion, trapping dozens of travelers and complicating efforts to recover victims of the attack.
London-based Sky News has reported that at least one of the explosions was a suicide bombing.
The blasts reportedly occurred in the departures lounge and near the American Airlines desk. These reports have yet to be confirmed by an official source.
Just an hour after explosions rocked the Zaventem airport the Maalbeek metro station in Brussels was hit by an explosion.
The metro station bombing left at least 15 dead and 15 wounded, bringing the total death toll in Belgium to 28.
The metro bombing took place just a few hundred yards away from the seat of the European Union government.
A Brussels police spokesperson has stated that deaths were also reported at a nearby police station. It is unclear if these casualties are victims of the Maalbeek metro bombing or are from yet another attack.
Travelers are being evacuated and the airport is now on lockdown. The Brussels metro system has now been shut down, leaving thousands of desperate travelers stranded at the bombed Zaventem airport.
