Brussels exploded in terrorist attacks on Tuesday morning, which were coordinated attacks, orchestrated so that bombs in two subway stations and at the airport in Brussels would just about simultaneously explode. This has put the U.S. into action re-examining the intelligence received from over the past few days to see if anything was missed, according to “Fox and Friends” live on March 22.
CBS News reports that the two bombs in the airport and the bombs at the two metro stations were timed about 30 minutes apart. The two bombs at the airport went off at the same time and then 30 minutes later the bombs went off in the metro stations in the Belgium capitol of Brussels. At least one suicide bomber was involved in these explosions. Belgium has raised its terror alert to it’s highest level.
A bomb went off at the American Airlines counter at the airport and near the American Embassy, which was close by to one of the metro stations. This brings up the question if there is some type of message being sent to the U.S. via these bombings, suggests Fox.
Officials have updated the number of dead to 34, which was reported on “Fox and Friends” live at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. These deaths are the total reported from both the airport explosion and from the wake of the bombs at the two metro stations. The death toll from these terrorist attacks is still expected to rise. Over 100 injuries from minor to serious have been reported.
The Wall Street Journal reports today “Explosions rocked Brussels’ international airport and a subway station near European Union institutions on Tuesday in what authorities described as terrorist attack.” Witnesses claim two bombs went off in the airport outside the security check-points and both were within close proximity of each other. It is believed a suicide bomber hit near the American Airlines counter, reports Rob O’Neil, on “Fox and Friends” live.
Belgium has been on high alert since Friday, as they had information that “something is coming,” reports Fox live. While they were on high alert, the terrorists still got through, which suggests it is almost impossible to predict where and when they will attack.
MSN News reports that “many of the dead and wounded were badly injured in the legs,” suggesting that at least one bomb was in a bag, or luggage, at the airport.The pictures of the aftermath of these Brussels attacks are horrific with the blasts shredding anything within a good size radius.
People who survived these attacks are seen in images on the morning news with their shirts blown off and other articles of clothing blown off. The look in many of the survivor’s eyes are blank, as if they are in shock.
Americans in Brussels are told to “shelter in place,” as authorities in Brussels have told their citizens to “go home, stay inside and lock your doors” until further notice, reports “Fox and Friends” live today. All public transportation has been halted, there is no way to move, so people have no choice but to stay put.
According to “Fox and Friends” live on Tuesday morning, security in public transportation has been beefed up for American cities. Airport security has tightened around the nation today and in many other places around the world.
