Belgiske myndigheter har hevet sikkerhetsnivået til maksimalt nivå. Brussel og Belgia er under angrep. All offentlig transport i Brussel er stanset.

Zaventem er en større flyplass, med 23 millioner passasjerer i året. Her meldes det om 13 drepte og 35 alvorlig sårede.

Bidlene inne fra terminalen er dramatiske.

Like etterpå kom meldinger om eksplosjoner på metroen i Brussel.

Eksplosjonen var så kraftig at folk på etasjer lenger opp også ble såret.

Jef Versele, 40, from Ghent, told the Press Association: ‘I was on my way to check in and two bombs went off – two explosions.

‘I didn’t see anything. Everything was coming down. Glassware. It was chaos. It was unbelievable. It was the worst thing.’

He added: ‘People were running away. There were lots of people on the ground. A lot of people are injured.’

Mr Versele was two or three storeys above the source of the explosion but he said many people around him were hurt.

‘The bomb was coming from downstairs. It was going up through the roof. It was big.

‘About 15 windows were just blown out from the entrance hall,’ he added.

En passasjer som tok metroen fra Arts-Loi  til Maalbeek og sentrum forteller:

A witness at Maelbeek station told Belgian broadcaster RTBF: ‘We left Maelbeek station towards the centre at around 9.07am, 9.10am, when we felt an explosion which appeared to come from the front of the train.

‘The lights went off, there was panic given what happened at Brussels airport.

‘The doors of the train were forced open to get off the train. There was a lot of smoke. We left via Maelbeek station. The glass doors were blown out. The explosion must have been violent.’

Vedkommende skrev opprinnelig at han kom ut ved Schuman, men sier noe at han tok feil. De kom ut ved Arts Loi, dvs de gikk tilbake langs sporet til stasjonen de kom fra.

Hvis det har skjedd en eksplosjon på et tog nede i metroen, mellom tre stasjoner, kan det være grunnen tl at det meldes om tre stasjoner.
