Mayhem in Brussels: 35 killed as multiple blasts hit airport, metro

A series of explosions claimed by the Islamic State group ripped through Brussels airport and a metro train Tuesday, killing at least 35 people in the latest attacks to bring bloody carnage to the heart of Europe.

Two huge blasts, at least one of which prosecutors said was likely caused by a suicide bomber, rocked the check-in hall at Zaventem Airport, strewing the scene with blood and mangled bodies and sending hundreds of terrified travellers fleeing in terror. The fact that extremists were able to hit high-profile targets in Brussels, Europe’s symbolic capital, just months after Islamic State militants killed 130 people in Paris, will raise fresh questions about the continent’s ability to cope with terrorism.

In New Delhi, the Indian government announced there were no Indians among those killed, according to information from the Indian embassy in Belgium, but there were two Indian employees of Jet Airways among those injured.
