Explosions which ripped through the Belgian capital's Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station have killed 35 and injured more than 200 people.
The bloodshed came just 4 days after the dramatic arrest in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam – the prime suspect in the Paris terror attacks claimed by the Islamic State group – after 4 months on the run. (READ: ISIS carried out Brussels attacks – ISIS-linked agency) – with reports from AFP/Rappler.com
