Coordinated terrorist attacks in Brussels early Tuesday killed at least 26 people, according to Belgian authorities. A suicide bomber blew himself up at the departure hall at Brussels Airport, killing at least 11 people and injuring scores more. An hour later, at least one explosion rocked the Maalbeek Metro station, killing 15 people near the headquarters of the European Union. The EU’s capital is virtually locked down in the wake of the attacks and the subsequent manhunt for other potential perpetrators. The attacks occurred four days after the capture of the remaining Paris attack suspect, Salah Abdeslam, in a Brussels suburb. The terrorist cell that attacked Paris in November was believed to have been based in Brussels.
