(Dagbladet): Det rapporteres at minst 43 mennesker skal ha mistet livet i flere terrorangrep mot Brussel tirsdag formiddag. 

Dette er det vi vet så langt: En rekke eksplosjoner, først på flyplassen, så på metroen, har tatt mange menneskeliv og den belgiske hovedstaden er fullstendig stengt av. 

En rekke europeiske land har nå økt terrorberedskapen som følge av angrepene i Brussel. 

Bombene på Zaventem flyplass Like før klokka 08.00 i dag morges gikk det av minst to eksplosjoner inne på Zaventem flyplass i Brussel, Belgia.

Bombene gikk av i innsjekkingsområdet, i nærheten av skrankene til Brussel Airlines og American Airlines.

Ifølge det belgiske nyhetsbyrået Belga har vitner fortalt at det ble avfyrt skudd og ropt på arabisk før de to eksplosjonene rammet flyplassen.

Belgiske medier melder at det er funnet tre ubrukte selvmordsbelter på flyplassen i Brussel. 13 mennesker er bekreftet drept i angrepene på flyplassen, og rundt 30 personer har status som såret.

Eksplosjonene var kraftige. Deler av taket i hallen har falt ned, og vinduene i den store bygningen er knust. Det har også steget røyk fra flyplassen.

Ingen har foreløpig påtatt seg ansvaret for eksplosjonene på flyplassen.
Angrepet på metroen Rundt klokka 09.20 kommer første melding om eksplosjon ved metrostasjonen Maelbeek i sentrum av Brussel. Stasjonen er like ved EUs hovedkvarter i byen. 

Brannvesenet i Brussel melder så om eksplosjoner ved ytterligere tre metrostasjoner. Dette viser seg ikke å stemme. 

Metroen i Brussel stenges og flere togstasjoner evakueres. T-banelinjene er stengt, og UD oppfordrer alle nordmenn i Brussel til å holde seg i ro. Belgiske myndigheter går ut og øker terrorberedskapen til høyeste nivå, samtidig som innbyggerne i Brussel bes unngå unødig bevegelse.

ST følger situasjonen i Belgia og vurderer om dette påvirker trusselbildet i Norge. Foreløpig har vi ikke opplysninger som tilsier det, skriver PST på Twitter. Nederland, Frankrike, Storbritannia og Danmark har høynet sikkerheten etter angrepene i Brussel.

Utenriksdepartementet har satt krisestab i Oslo og ved ambassaden i Brussel: - Vi jobber i tett kontakt med den norske ambassaden i Brussel for å kartlegge om norske borgere er berørt. Jeg kan ikke si mer om dette nå, men vi arbeider med saken, sier pressevakt Astrid Sehl. 

Ingen har foreløpig påtatt seg ansvaret for eksplosjonene på metroen.
