BRUSSELS, March 22. /TASS/. Terrorists have exploded three bombs at Brussels airport, a police source told TASS.
"The terrorists used three bombs for the double blast at the airport," he said.
At least 17 people were killed in twin blasts with dozens injured, according to fire brigade workers at the scene.
The international airport of Brussels, located 11 kilometers away from the Belgian capital, is one of the largest in Europe. According to the air hub’s official website it services up to 23.5 million passengers and handles a little less than half a million cargoes a year. Seventy seven air carriers operate about 650 flights a day to more than 200 destinations.
