BRUSSELS, March 22. /TASS/. Two explosions occurred at Maelbeek and Schuman metro stations close to the EU institutions in Brussels after two blasts hit the Belgian capital’s airport, local media reported on Tuesday.
According to the police, ten people were killed in blast at Maelbeek metro station.
"The exact number of those killed and injured is currently unknown," the source said. "But we can already talk about at least ten victims."
Belgian broadcaster RTBF said all metro stations, schools and public places in Brussels are closing.
At least 17 people were killed earlier on Tuesday in twin blasts at Zaventem airport near Brussels with dozens injured.
The airport's twitter account informs flights have been cancelled as the evacuation is underway.
A police source told TASS it is too early to link the latest blasts at Brussels airport with the arrest of the chief suspect in the November terrorist attacks in Paris, Salah Abdeslam.
