Belgium Terror Attack: At Least 28 Dead in Two Explosions After Suicide Bomber Targets American Airlines at Brussels Airport as SECOND Attack Hits Metro Station

At least 28 people have been killed and dozens injured in Brussels after a series of terror attacks struck the city's airport and a metro station near the EU headquarters.

Witnesses described apocalyptic scenes with blood and 'dismembered bodies everywhere' after two blasts rocked the American Airlines check-in desk at Brussels Airport at 8am (7am GMT) in a suspected suicide bombing. At least 13 people have died and 35 were injured.

Around 90 minutes later, at least 15 people are believed to have been killed when a blast destroyed a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre in another suspected terror attack.

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. 

At the airport, shouts in Arabic were reportedly heard before the explosions which sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows, knocking roof tiles off the ceiling and sending terrified passengers running for their lives.

Samir Derrouich, who works at a restaurant in the airport, told MailOnline: 'The two explosions were almost simultaneous. 

'They were both at check-in desk. One was close to the Starbucks. It was awful. There was just blood. It was like the apocalypse.'
