Twin blasts at Brussel’s airport Tuesday left the dead and wounded lying in pools of blood as the ceiling caved in and panicked passengers fled the bombed-out departure hall.
At least 11 people were killed in the morning rush-hour attack, which the Belgian authorities quickly said was a suicide bombing. It was soon followed by another “enormous” blast, this time at a metro station close to the European Union buildings in the capital, which left around 10 dead.
