An explosion at a Brussels metro station has increased fears that the city is under a terror attack following two blasts at Brussels Airport this morning.

The blast was seen at Maalbeek metro station, in central Brussels.

Maalbeek metro station is close to the European Union building, and authorities have now closed down all metro stations in the city.

At least 11 people are believed to have been killed and dozens more injured following the explosions. (Daily Mail - UK)

The death toll of the explosions has increased upto 13 and 35 people had been injured.

A string of explosions rocked Brussels airport and a city metro station today as Belgium raised its terror threat to the maximum level.

Two explosions targeted the main hall of Zaventem Airport at around 8:00 am (0700 GMT), with a third hitting the Maalbeek metro station, near the European Union's main buildings, just as commuters were making their way to work in rush hour.

    CitizenPerera Wednesday, 23 March 2016 02:51 AM

    Why not Belgian give up supporting the Western invention of modern day terrorism?

    George Wednesday, 23 March 2016 03:58 AM

    Our citizen Perera if the western is so bad why are you using there technology.... Might as well as do some ploughing.. You racist. via DM Android App

    Lanka Wednesday, 23 March 2016 05:56 AM

    Embarrassing comments by Sri Lankans! No one should rejoice or think tit-for-tat about terror attacks or any human harm. I doubt very much that any other nationality thought this way during our 30 years of misery.

    Arnold Wednesday, 23 March 2016 06:02 AM

    ISIS is Mossad.

    MERVYN PERERA Wednesday, 23 March 2016 06:07 AM

    IF YOU WELCOME REFUGEES FROM ARAB COUNTRIES WHO CANNOT LIVE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES YOU ARE ARE ASKING FOR TROUBLE. WHY BLAME THE WEST .

    SAMAN Wednesday, 23 March 2016 06:11 AM

    When bombs were going of in SL, the so called West wanted us to speak to the those LTTE terrorists and find an amicable solution. Well mate, now it is your time to do the same! hehe

    Justicia Wednesday, 23 March 2016 06:16 AM

    OK Mr Belgium. But these characters (western Nation) have a cool headed approach for carrying out all their dirty work. ALSO note no one here has expressed their joy but only stated facts. Pl refer dictonary if you do not know the meaning of "joy"

    onlooker Wednesday, 23 March 2016 07:59 AM

    But these charactors are fighting for LTTE terrorists so called human rights. Can anyone give a count of the innocent sri lanka killed by the terrorists ?.These western powers are forcing us to grant amnesty to these terrorists.

    CounterStrike Wednesday, 23 March 2016 08:27 AM

    Western tech is used merely for convenience or to be used against those western nations and not because we love them. Remember how the west reacted to LTTE acts. EU rubbish paper ban on the LTTE. No sympathies to what is happening in the EU today. I hope ISIS takes the battle directly to downing street.

    Don Wednesday, 23 March 2016 09:31 AM

    Mervyn, you are absolutely right. Lets stop the west in invading the middle eastern countries so that the Arabs will not leave their own countries.

    Mickey mouse Wednesday, 23 March 2016 09:35 AM

    The "West has suffered two world wars in the last century thus doesnt need any lessons to teach it anything. You need to look at what really started the war here in Sri lanka...the root cause.... did the the Sinhala only rule have anything to do with it....just asking?

    Jude Wednesday, 23 March 2016 10:33 AM

    European countries Harboured LTTE terrorist, and they raised funds in Europe without any hinderence !!!??

    aruna Wednesday, 23 March 2016 10:41 AM

    May be Donald Trump stage this to get the republican nominations. Who knows !

    justicia Wednesday, 23 March 2016 11:06 AM

    Any technology is built on earlier works of others. Research and find out the origin of the word "algorithm" used in computer terminogy.

    CitizenPerera Tuesday, 22 March 2016 02:38 PM

    Although I sympathize with innocent civilians caught up in the violence, this is a damn good lesson for all Western countries that support LTTE and international terrorism.

    Watch Wednesday, 23 March 2016 12:44 PM

    Mr.Perera : You are very correct . Apart from innocent civilians good lesson for terrorist sympathizers

    lokka Tuesday, 22 March 2016 03:15 PM

    This is Muzzrats terrorist attack...

    Kaslana Tuesday, 22 March 2016 03:29 PM

    The chickens are coming home to roost by bringing their violence with them that the West invested in "SUPPORTING TERROR"!

    Imran Tuesday, 22 March 2016 04:05 PM

    CitizenPrerera - just because we suffered we should not think in this way. It is sad that you are even making comments like this. We should not be happy at the time of someone else is in distress.

    CitizenPerera Tuesday, 22 March 2016 04:36 PM

    Bravo Kalana, The West is reaping the harvest from the seeds of "Terror" they sow world wide.

    Justicia Tuesday, 22 March 2016 04:48 PM

    AND also for USA allowing Israel to do what they (Israel) wants - and USA giving rather carefully worded statements (supposedly showing concern to the Plastirnians) not to disturb Israel.

    Prometheous Tuesday, 22 March 2016 04:57 PM

    This is what happens to infidels. All-mighty does not tolerate infidels.

    Top Cat Tuesday, 22 March 2016 05:26 PM

    Totally agree. I also feel the same way about the innocent civilians killed in the North and East. All the responsible should be punished through an independent court.

    Jayaruwan Tuesday, 22 March 2016 06:16 PM

    As a Belgian living here in Sri Lanka, I am disgusted by the comments here... During the Civil War here, there were never any comments of joy about the deaths in any Belgian newspaper.If the West is so bad, why not give up all the western inventions. (cars, computers, internet,...)
