Breaking News: Terrorist Attack Rocks Brussels as Multiple Explosions Rip through City! (Updated)

Written by Onan Coca

Just days after local authorities caught the Muslim mastermind behind the November 2015 Paris terrorist attack, the city of Brussels, in Belgium was rocked by a terrorist attack of it’s own. Early Tuesday morning three explosions ripped through the city killing at least 34 people and injuring more than 200 others.

14 were killed when a bomb exploded at Zaventem Airport and 20 more were killed as bombs went off in the city’s subway.

“We were fearing terrorist attacks, and that has now happened,” Belgium’s Prime Minister told reporters.

The following is just released video from the CCTV feed (and cellphone footage) in the airport. (Warning it is hard to watch.)

ISIS hasn’t yet claimed responsibility but they have dropped several hints. (Update: ISIS has now claimed responsibility for the attack.)

Cities all over the world are now tightening security, fearing that ISIS may have more terror planned.

But some on the Left still refuse to call the attack what it is – Islamic terrorism.

Of course, the world is condemning the terrible attack.

Belgium has cancelled flights, shut down the metro and sent all but essential personnel home from two nuclear power plants as well.
All but essential staff were sent home from two nuclear power plants in Belgium — one in Tihange and the other in Doel, said a representative of Engie, the French company that operates the facilities. Belgian authorities ordered this evacuation, though the representative did not provide further details.

UPDATE: Belgian authorities are seeking a suspect who seems to have dropped a bomb that did not explode and then left before the carnage began.

Authorities called him a wanted man and asked for the public’s help tracking him down.

“The third man left a bomb in the airport, but it didn’t explode. … And we are now looking for this guy,” Belgium’s Interior Minister Jan Jambon said.
