34 Dead, Dozens Wounded As Explosions Rock Brussels Days After Paris Bomber’s Arrest
At least 26 people are reported dead after several explosions rocked Brussels airport and a subway station on Tuesday.
The Belgian Capital is on lock down and commercial planes are being diverted to other Belgian cities.
According to the NY Post a Brussels police spokesman is reporting deaths at the Maelbeek police station near European Union headquarters.
The Brussels attacks are in revenge for the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that left 130 dead.
Abdeslam was taken into custody on Friday following a police raid on an apartment just yards away from his family home in Brussels. The Belgian native was shot in the left foot during a brief shootout with police.
Police believe a network of terrorists kept Abdeslam hidden for months while more attacks were being planned by experienced jihadis who slipped into Europe along with the surge of refugees from Syria.
