According to an official communique from the Belgian government, the Brussels airport explosions are being considered a terrorist attack.
Twin explosions rocked the airport earlier in the day. The building has been evacuated and traffic to the area has been suspended.
The blasts in Brussels come just days after Salah Abdeslam, the mastermind behind the November Paris Attacks, was arrested in Belgium.
Belgian intelligence had advance knowledge of plans to carry out terrorist attacks in the country but was unaware of their time or location, the French BFMTV reported Tuesday, citing police sources.
