At least 23 people have been killed and dozens injured in Brussels after a series of terror attacks struck the city’s airport and a metro station near the EU headquarters.
Witnesses described scenes ‘like the apocalypse‘ with blood and ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after two blasts rocked the American Airlines check-in desk at Brussels Airport at 8am (7am GMT) in a suspected suicide bombing.
Around 90 minutes later, ten people are believed to have died when an explosion hit a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre in another suspected terror attack.
