Explosions hit Brussels airport, several killed: Belgian media

BRUSSELS| BY PHILIP BLENKINSOP (http://www.reuters.com/journalists/philip-blenkinsop)

Explosions tore through the departure hall of Brussels airport on Tuesday morning killing up to 10 people and injuring 30 others and a second blast struck a metro station in the capital shortly afterwards, the Belgian public broadcaster RTBF said.

The Belga agency said shots were fired and there were shouts in Arabic shortly before the blasts at the airport. Pictures on social media showed smoke rising from the terminal building through shattered windows and passengers running away down a slipway, some still hauling their bags.

The blasts at the airport and metro station occurred four days after the arrest in Brussels of a suspected participant in November militant attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Belgian police had been on alert for any reprisal action.

...

Hearing at least 5 attack points, though doesn't appear to be lots of panic. Raised alert to highest level.

Now hearing there was suicide vest at airport. Some other explosions, shots. If the public isn't panicking, the press is.

All subways, trains, and airports shut down.

One or two of the explosions were in subways.

Basically the police have issued a 'shelter in place' order.

Some sort of explosive, TNTP is said to have been used-seems both Al Queda and ISIS use this.

The timing with this attack and the capture of the Paris bomber, seems to cause speculation that this was a planned attack, that may have been moved up.

These attacks are, here, being seen as an equivalent to the '7/7' London attacks of a decade ago.

No doubt the public mood will also be an equivalent. Calm consideration of events from the public, frenzied reporting from the media ... our news reports are swamped with it, currently ... and, of course, very careful language from the BBC's reporters, resorting yet AGAIN to refraining against calling them 'terrorists' outright.

We will, but of course, be treated to yet more of 'they aren't typical or representative of mainstream Islam' rot. Our politicians will insist that's true ... no matter how many attacks happen, no matter what the death tolls, no matter what is said by the perpetrators as to why they did it. Leftie fictions are ALL that matters in situations and over issues such as this.

You in America have two great things going for you, which we, alas, do not.

One ... the BBC is NOT your national, official, broadcaster !

Two ... you have a possible (increasingly likely) prospect of Donald Trump becoming your President ! He, of all people, can be expected to make whatever tough decisions MUST be made to keep Americans safe, whether or not they come across as 'PC friendly' ..... he'll definitely not be at all constrained by any PC imperatives ..... :salute:

Nor do I.

And I'd extend that to my 'consideration' of the perpetrators. The scum responsible have - even though there are those who'd ludicrously disagree - shown NO capacity for human thought AT ALL in what they've done.

Exactly the opposite.

We'd all do a lot to help render counter-terrorism measures effective, it seems to me, if we all just, finally and for good, understood what terrorists truly ARE. They are not 'human beings'. They do not deserve 'human rights' ... certainly nor when their reason for being is to indiscriminately rob others of THEIR right to the most fundamental human right of all ... to STAY ALIVE and LIVE.

None of what you recommend is going to happen as long as Obama and the left are at the helm of the free world.
Refugees will continue to be let in to Western Europe and America

So this will continue to happen.

Agree that they are related.

Last I heard yesterday is that the terrorist that they grabbed from the Paris attacks was singing like a canary, so it makes sense that the other animals in his terrorist ring had to carry out their missions pronto before they got nabbed.

Just think how much fun it will be when the obama's specially invited in Syrian muslim terrorists start doing that and worse here.
Won't that be great fun???
Of course, he'll be gone onto greener pastures and will take none of the blame.
The media will continue to credit his as a great and compassionate man. -Tyr

I think that most commentators are already starting to criticize Obama's terms. He is not well received by either the right or the left. The left has more than failed foreign policies they're criticizing him for, it's not only the admitted failure of Obamacare, it was how bad it was and how he failed to deliver on so many other promises. First time I can remember the left eating their own to any degree.

Interesting insight as to how they caught the ringleader - staking out the funeral was a slick move by the cops.


Abdeslam's older brother Brahim, one of the Paris suicide bombers, was buried Thursday in a Brussels cemetery after French investigators finally released his remains to the family. A score of mourners came to the funeral, as did police. El Khannouss said identity papers were checked.

Moniquet added that police "interrogated people, took information on their phones."


Photos published in the Belgian press showed that one of mourners who carried Brahim Abdeslam's casket was a young man with a beard who wore a black knit cap.


Identified as Abid Aberkan, he is related to the Abdeslam family, El Khannouss said, although he added he wasn't sure of the precise blood connection.


The Molenbeek official believes some mourners were tailed by authorities as they left the cemetery. In any event, according to Moniquet, "from that time on, they immediately focused on Aberkan. By Thursday night, they were absolutely sure that he (Abdeslam) was hiding in the apartment of Aberkan's mother in Molenbeek."


That apartment is at No. 79 Rue des Quatre-Vents -- the Street of the Four Winds -- a rundown three-story dwelling that belongs to the municipality and serves as low-income housing. The ground-floor windows are boarded up and the basement windows are barred with ironwork.


At around 4:30 p.m. Friday, the usually quiet neighborhood was swarming with heavily armed police, said a 32-year-old woman who lives across the street. She identified herself only as Aman, refusing to give her last name because she said she was afraid and hasn't been able to sleep since then.


She said she watched through the curtains of her front window at about 4:40 or 4:45 p.m. as Abdeslam bolted from the front door of No. 79, turned left, and was shot in the leg by a SWAT team that had sealed off the street.
"Police said to stop. When he didn't, they shot him," Aman said.


The officers may not have realized who they had captured at first. According to El Khannouss, Abdeslam was so wan and had lost so much weight while on the run that police didn't immediately recognize him.

I'm happy to hear that the terrorist was himself terrorized. Being hunted down like an animal is pretty stressful, enough that you can't sleep or eat as the noose tightens.

Also, interesting that the terrorists are living off welfare in state-owned housing, even as they plot to kill those stupid enough to let them in and then provide for their existence.

A couple more of these incidents should be sufficient to launch the full scale urban warfare that I see coming in the next year or two as Europe finally comes to their senses & realizes that the wolves live among them and that there is no mercy or tolerance from these savages.

ISIS has already said many times that they're sending thousands of terrorists in the waves of refugees to attack, and Merkel blithely continues the suicidal policy - because ISIS was probably just joking, right?

Fools. All of them.

I'm just angry that the people who will pay the ultimate price are not those responsible for opening the gates to the hordes of savages.

The best lessons are the hardest ones, it is true. Europe will pay dearly in blood for them.

Well why has your boy Obama done nothing to really root these animals out?

Oh, Yeah....he called them the 'Junior Varsity'....

If we team up with the Brits, French, Germans, Danes, Russians, Swedes...there could be progress.

As it is, Obama does not want to do a frikkin' thing! Even 7.5 years later, it is all GWB's fault according to
Obama. He and you Libs ignore the fact he deserted the Iraqui's when a agreement could have been made.

AND Again.
now CNN reports the Turks told Belgium some of the men allegedly involved LAST YEAR. now to Belguim officials are resigning because they admit they dropped the ball.

there's NO need for extra precautions or extra wars or extra raids etc.. the officials just need to get off their butts ann follow through on the intel they already have in hand.


Same happen in the 1st trade center bombing in 93, --FBI had an inside guy that warn them they fired him shortly before the bombing

then again on 911, --FBI and NSA had knowledge of various activities, had a laptop with intel in the midwest, had terrorist in Florida and California watched, had surveillance on Atta, warnings from France and others

and again in Boston, --Russians warned the U.S.

and again with the underwear bomber, --the bombers own father alerted U.S. authorities

a case can be made of Oklahoma city and other terror events as well.
and none of those CLEAR alerts came from doing blanket spying, torture or other unconstitutional methods.
go figure.
