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.
