    Earlier it was reported, that before explosions shooting was heard in the departures area of the airport, then someone shouted something in Arabic.

    A series of blasts hit the Belgian capital earlier in the day, including two explosions in the Brussels Zaventem airport that left 14 people killed and 81 injured. At least 20 people were reportedly killed in explosions at the metro stations in central Brussels, 73 were injured.

    ​The blasts in Brussels come just days after Salah Abdeslam, the mastermind behind the November Paris Attacks, was arrested in Belgium.

    Daesh (Islamic State/ISIL/ISIS) is outlawed in numerous countries across the world, including Russia.
