    The Eurostar train traffic has been suspended in Brussels amid explosions.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Eurostar train traffic has been suspended in Brussels following several explosions that hit the Belgian capital earlier in the day, the company told Sputnik on Tuesday:

    "Eurostar service from London to Brussels has been suspended until further notice. What we are planning to do be able to do is run a train from London to Lille, which is on the same route."   

    Two explosions hit Brussels's Zaventem airport on Tuesday at around 8:00 a.m. local time (07:00 GMT). The explosion killed 13 people, and injured 35, according to the prosecutor's office in Brussels.

    Shortly after the airport blasts, explosions were also reported at the Maalbeek and Schuman metro stations in the Brussels city center.
