Meanwhile, the victims of a series of blasts in the Belgian capital have yet to be identified, Brussels City Mayor Yvan Mayeur said Tuesday.

"The victims have not been identified yet. It will take considerable time," the mayor told reporters in Brussels.

According to Mayeur, Brussels is now in the same situation as Paris was in November 2015.

Earlier on Tuesday, twin blasts rocked Brussels Airport, killing at least 13 and injuring dozens more. ​Belgian prosecutors call the airport attacks, and the subsequent metro bomb just steps away from the European Comission building, acts of terrorism.
