Early Tuesday, at least 30 people were killed and 130 were injured, the New York Times reports, in two separate terrorist attacks on Belgium’s Zaventem airport and a subway station in Brussels. According to multiple reports, an official media outlet associated with the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.


A suicide bomber was responsible for at least one of the explosions at the airport, according to Belgian Federal Prosecutor, Frederic Van Leeuw. According to an unnamed U.S. security official, at least one suitcase bomb was used in the attack, the A.P. reports.

Belgium’s Prime Minister, Charles Michel, deemed today’s tragic event as “blind attacks,” and urged his people to “stay where they are.”

In reaction to today’s events, President Obama reached out to the people of Belgium, saying, "The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the people of Belgium.”
