Two bombs exploded in the departure area of Zaventem airport in Brussels (Belgium) at about 8 am (local time). An hour later a bomb was set off at Maalbeek metro station. According to the preliminary estimates, at least 13 people were killed and 35 were seriously wounded in the attacks. The airport is closed, the traffic in the city is stopped, and mobile connections are disabled. The terror attacks took place four days after Salah Abdeslam, one of the organizers and perpetrators of the November 2015 Paris terror attacks, was arrested in Brussels.
