At least 34 people were killed and more than 230 injured in bomb attacks on Brussels’ Zaventem airport and a metro station in the Belgian capital on Tuesday morning. Twenty people died as a result of the explosion at the Maelbeek metro station and 14 from the two blasts at the airport.
Belgian police appealed for help identifying one of three men captured on CCTV wheeling baggage trolleys through the airport. The state broadcaster, RTBF, said two of the men were suspected suicide bombers.
Islamic State (Isis) claimed responsibility for the attacks, according to a news agency affiliated to the group.
The Belgian prime minister, Charles Michel, described it as a “black day” for Belgium, saying: “What we feared has happened”. The king is due to address the nation at 7pm (6pm GMT).
Brussels airport CEO Arnaud Feist has confirmed to ABC News that a third bomb was found at the airport and was subsequently detonated in a controlled explosion.
A journalist with radio station VRT is reporting that the police are currently searching for two suspects. A photograph of one, seen dressed in white prior to the attack at Brussels airport, has been released by federal prosecutors.
Radio journalist Philip Heymans says a second man, who fled the scene at Maelbeek, is also wanted by police.
