"Islamic State fighters opened fire inside Zaventem Airport, before several of them detonated their explosive belts, as a martyrdom bomber detonated his explosive belt in the Maalbeek metro station," a spokesperson said. "The attacks resulted in more than 230 dead and wounded." spokesman added.

It said Belgium was targeted as "a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State". (The Independent)

    As soonas it happened we knew it was an act of ISIS. But these western countries should be more vigilant similar to SL which eradicated terrorism in 2010.
