    The European Parliament has increased security after the explosions in a Brussels airport and metro, the parliament's spokesman said Tuesday.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) A series of blasts hit the Belgian capital earlier in the day, including two explosions in the Brussels Zaventem airport that left 13 people killed and 35 injured. Ten people were reportedly killed in explosions at the Maalbeek and Schuman metro stations in central Brussels, local media reported, citing police.

    "#EuropeanParliament deeply worried by Brussels attacks. Security level increased. Working closely with Belgian authorities," Jaume Duch wrote on his Twitter account.

    He added that European Parliament buildings were not being evacuated, but several meetings had been canceled.
