    A Kalashinkov automatic rifle has been recovered inside a Brussels Airport departure hall where two blasts took the lives of up to 28 people, the Belgian RTBF broadcaster reported Tuesday.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – The official death toll in the northeastern Brussels municipality of Zaventem stands at 15 people.

    ​Witnesses reported hearing Arabic shouting and shots fired ahead of the deadly blasts, one of which the Belgian federal prosecutor said was "possibly" a suicide attack.

    ​A third explosion rocked the Malbeek subway station in central Brussels half an hour after the initial blast.
