    Brussels Zaventem airport blasts cause casualties

    The Belgian government has confirmed casualties but has given no numbers. The cause of the explosions is unknown.

    Another explosion has now been reported at the Maelbeek metro station close to the EU institutions. The whole metro system has been closed.

    The blasts come four days after the capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the jihadist attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015.

    Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level.

    10 Confirmed dead and over 30 critically injured, the airport is about 3 km from my office. Very hectic morning, all highways leading to airport closed, Brussels on virtual lockdown including Metros. Quite surreal with plenty of ambulances rushing to the airport.

    The bastards have struck again.

    Let us not say that.
    We must condemn indiscriminate killing everywhere.
    Indian values do not permit mass killing or killing innocents.

    BTW there is nothing called as 'Indian values' either Hindu or Dharmic values. :)

    Terrorists with no religion by shouting allaha-ho-akbar just killed 17 and counting.

    I am just observing their media and they are so united and this is what I am tweeting that, they are not like our media who starts criticising government and don't let do the crisis management.

    Critics and blame game they have left for after the crisis.

    @Illusive removed the ? mark from the title of the thread.

    IS had claimed that they were smuggling in Suicide bombers amongst the refugees and guess what they were not bluffing.

    Irish Times claims 23 confirmed dead and 35 injured, emergency has been announced and the entire country has been shut down.

    A similar lockdown happened when they were hunting the Paris attack masterminds. Some irresponsible Twitter users shared photos of law enforcement officials which upset the administration because they apparently alerted the jihadists about the whereabouts of the raiding party. Following an advisory issued by their administration in the wake of these social media leaks, Belgians started tweeting pictures of cats to make sure any sensitive message got drowned in a sea of cat pics under the hashtag #BrusselsLockdown

    Their conventional media and social media is very mature.

    There is a rising clamor among people who are insisting that if muslims claim that terrorists have nothing to do with Islam then they should have no problem when we wrap every dead terrorist's body in pig skin and burn him on a Friday. I mean, if he's not muslim then it wouldn't matter to real muslims, amirite?

    11 dead at the airport, 15 dead at the Metro, toll still climbing.

    Indians are largely well treated here, I have never really faced any form of racism.

    I live in Antwerp, Brussels is a shit hole, the politicans, EU policies and negligence over decades has turned it into a bustling shit hole.
