ذكرت وسائل إعلام، الثلاثاء، أنباء عن توقيف اثنين من المشتبه بهم في هجمات بروكسل.

ووقعت 4 تفجيرات في العاصمة البلجيكية بروكسل صباح الثلاثاء اثنان في مطار بروكسل وآخران في محطتي مترو قريبتين من مبان للاتحاد الأوروبي.

وخلفت التفجيرات عشرات القتلى والجرحى وخسائر مادية، بينما لم تتبن أي جهة حتى الآن المسؤولية عن الهجمات.

من جهته، قال المدعي العام الاتحادي في بلجيكا في مؤتمر صحفي إن أحد التفجيرين اللذين وقعا في مطار بروكسل نفذه مهاجم انتحاري على الأرجح.

وأضاف المدعي العام فريدريك فان ليو "هذا الصباح وقع تفجيران بصالة المغادرة في مطار بروكسل. ونفذ أحدهما مهاجم انتحاري على الأرجح وبعد ذلك بنحو نصف ساعة وقع تفجير في (محطة مترو) مايلبيك".

These are the three men police suspect carried out the bombing at Brussels airport - and one is still on the run, it was claimed today.

The trio were apparently captured on CCTV in the minutes before 14 people died and dozens more were maimed in the check-in area.

Belgian media said the two men on the left had blown themselves up and the third suspect, wearing a hat, is believed to have left a nail bomb and fled, according to De Standaard

The two suspected suicide bombers were both wearing black gloves on their left hands, which security sources say would have hidden the triggers for their explosive vests.

It is not known if the fugitive in white then sped to Maelbeek station to carry out the blast that killed 20 people in a subway train just 79 minutes later.

It came as ISIS claimed responsibility for the massacres, which have killed 34 in total and injured close to 200 others.

The Belgian Foreign Ministry has confirmed they believe some of the terrorists involved are still at large.

Minutes later two suspects were held at gunpoint at Brussels North railway a mile from Maelbeek subway.

At least two people in Brussels have been arrested this morning, outside the citys North railway station, a mile from the Maelbeek subway.

A third suspect has been arrested on a train near Amsterdam and a suspect package at Gard du Nord in Paris delayed Eurostar services this afternoon.

Police are already looking at hours of CCTV footage before and after the explosions as they hunt for those behind the attacks.

But security sources said today they believe they do have video of one of the terrorists moments before he detonated one of three bombs.

The carnage began at 8am today when two suspected nail bombs were set off in the check-in area of Brussels airport. A third unexploded suicide belt was found in the rubble.

Just 79 minutes later a bomb blew up an underground train. 

Shocking images from Maelbeek station show the mangled remains of the train, smoke pouring out of the building and casualties littered on the pavement outside - just 400metres from the EUs headquarters.

The bomb went off at 9.19am - just over an hour after two explosions killed at least 14 in a suicide attack on the Belgian capitals main airport.

Brussels’ public transport authority has revealed that the three-carriage train at Maelbeek was ripped apart by a single explosion, with the bomb set off in its middle carriage. It is not known if it was a suicide attack or a planted bomb.

Commuters on the Metro at the time described hearing a loud bang before they were evacuated from trains and forced to walk down smoke-filled tunnels and along the track to the closest safe station.

The image below is being used by the Belgian media who claim this is the damage caused by the bomb at the Maelbeek Metro station in central Brussels this morning. It has not been verified by the authorities but is being widely circulated on social media.

A witness said: ‘We left Maelbeek station towards the centre at around 9.07, 9.10, when we felt an explosion which appeared to come from the front of the train.

‘The lights went off, there was panic given what happened at Brussels airport.

‘The doors of the train were forced open to get off the train. There was a lot of smoke. We left via Maelbeek station. The glass doors were blown out. The explosion must have been enormous.’

Emergency services at the scene were carrying the dead and injured out of the station on stretchers.

Alexandre Brans, 32, who was wiping blood from his face, said: The metro was leaving Maelbeek station when there was a really loud explosion. It was panic everywhere. There were a lot of people in the metro.

20 people are said to have been killed at the Metro bombing at 9.19am.

Brussels resident Shigeo Sugimoto said he was one stop away from where the metro was hit and heard people shouting.

He wrote on Facebook: I am fine !! But i was in the metro when suddenly some one start shouting explosions!!! Evacuation!!!

Ouch!!! I was just one station ahead before when explosion happened !!!!!!!!

He posted pictures showing cars and people standing in the road and wrote: Maerbeek (sic) now apocalypse!!!

Mr Sugimoto said he saw a man with blood on his face in the vicinity of Maelbeek station in the EU quarter, near the European Commissions main building.

He was at Arts-Loi station, one ahead of Maelbeek, and told the Press Association: On the ground, there were already people walking every direction to distance (themselves) from metro and the Belgian army were there trying to make people calm.

I saw a guy, blood over his face, dragged by another person. Then police start blocking the street and I could only see ambulances go and come.

Evan Lamos was among the thousands of commuters on tube trains this morning when the network was attacked.

He was on two stops away from Maelbeek and the passengers on his train were evacuated from the carriages into a smoke-filled tunnel and then walked along the tracks to the exit at the nearest station.

He said: There was a dull thud. We felt a blast of air and my ears popped shortly afterwards. The Metro stopped immediately.

Mr Lamos was told that there was an incident on the line, suggesting that a train may have been bombed.

Ian McCafferty was on the Metro when the explosion took place in Maelbeek.

He told Sky News: I was getting off at the station before Maelbeek and we heard a very loud thud. The stations are much closer together than in London so we heard it clearly.

Panic set in and people rushed off the train. We ran to the stairs and were met by soldiers who quickly evacuated the station.

The explosions came just a day after the Belgium Interior Minister warned of possible revenge attacks after the arrest of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam in the city last week.

At the airport, shouts in Arabic were reportedly heard before the explosions which sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows, knocking roof tiles off the ceiling and sending terrified passengers running for their lives.

Samir Derrouich, who works at a restaurant in the airport, told MailOnline: The two explosions were almost simultaneous.

They were both at check in desk. One was close to the Starbucks. It was awful. There was just blood. It was like the apocalypse.

Photographs from inside the arrivals hall showed the floor covered in fallen tiles and dust as bloodied people hobbled out of the airport. Others injured were photographed lying on the floor.

Video shows terrified passengers running for their lives out of the terminal.

In the aftermath of the explosions at the airport, thousands of people waiting for flights this morning were penned inside the terminal as police sealed off the shattered arrivals hall.
