Thirty-four people were killed in attacks on Brussels airport and a rush-hour metro train in the Belgian capital today, according to public broadcaster VRT, triggering security alerts across Europe and bringing some cross-border traffic to a halt.

The Islamic State (IS) group said it was behind the attacks in a statement issued on the IS-linked Amaq agency.

Brussels federal prosecutor said one of the explosions was probably triggered by a suicide bomber.

Meanwhile, US President Barack Obama in commenting on the Brussels attack during a news conference in Cuba said “We must be together regardless of nationality or race or faith in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”
