AT least one person has reportedly been killed after two explosions at the Zaventem airport in Brussels.

Several people were also injured in the explosions which occurred in the American Airlines departure hall.

There are reports that there could be as many as 11 people killed, but no confirmation.

Sky News is reporting gunfire and shouting in Arabic was heard in the airport before the explosions.

Dropping a bomb a week in Syria is pointless when the enemy is amongst us.

Horrific and deeply saddening news.

Sadly all too true, and in any event how does that influence people who are willing to blow themselves up for their cause - ultimately the resolution to this will have to come from a very different approach to terror and a perspective that is beyond most of our understanding in the west, one sadly no one yet seems to have come up with.

Despicable crime.

Can't remember if Oppers was from Belgium or not. If so, I sincerely hope she's safe and sound, along with any other forum members living over there.

I am from Belgium.

Thanks for the concern.

I haven't been working in Brussels for a while though and it's even been a little while since I went there altogether. I do have a lot of friends and acquaintances who still work/live there. Thankfully they are all fine.

Still a huge shock. I guess it does feel different when it happens so close to home.
