NATURAL ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES Two explosions tore through Brussels airport on Tuesday morning killing at least 11 people in what Belgian media called a suicide attack, and a further blast struck a metro station in the capital shortly afterwards. The Belga agency said shots were fired and there were shouts in Arabic shortly before two blasts rang out at the airport. Pictures on social media showed passengers running away, some wounded, others still hauling their bags. All public transport in Brussels was shut down, as it was in London during 2005 militant attacks on the underground that killed 52. The Belgian Crisis Centre appealed to the population: "Stay where you are". The blasts at the airport and metro station occurred four days after the arrest in Brussels of a suspected participant in November militant attacks in Paris that killed 130 people. Belgian police had been on alert for any reprisal action.
