Brussels Airport Terror: At least 23 dead after ‘suicide bombers’ attack American Airlines check-in desk

At least 13 people have died and up to 50 injured after two explosions rocked Brussels Airport in a suspected suicide bombing.

Witnesses described seeing ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after the blasts hit the American Airlines check-in desk at around 8am (7am GMT).

There were reports that shouts in Arabic were heard before the explosions and shots fired in the aftermath.

Around 90 minutes later, ten were killed when an explosion hit a Metro station near the EU headquarters in the city centre in another suspected terror attack.

Photographs from inside the arrivals hall showed the floor was covered in fallen roof tiles and dust as bloodied people hobbled out of the airport. Others injured were photographed lying on the floor.

Video shows terrified passengers running for their lives out of the terminal.

The explosions come just a day after the Belgium Interior Minister warned of possible revenge attacks after the arrest of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam in the city last week.
