Just heard of an explosion at BRU.

No detailed info yet. Happened inside the terminal building.

H.A.

A second explosion said to be much more powerful.

All approaching planes seem to be diverted to other airports.

I was to fly at 12:10... I consider myself lucky...

No way there aren't any fatalities... I hope not many...

RIP all those that passed away, except for the idiots responsible...

I feel very sad...

I am trembling like a leaf. Got a lot of colleagues there at the moment.
