BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel says “what we feared has happened” and says authorities are worried there will be more attacks.

Speaking a news conference in Brussels, Michel says “there are many dead, many injured” from the attacks earlier Tuesday at the airport and a subway station. He says border controls have been reinforced.

Michel says “we realize we face a tragic moment. We have to be calm and show solidarity.”



Belgian federal prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw is calling all three explosions in Brussels “terrorist attacks.”

Two of the explosions on Tuesday morning hit Brussels’ Zavantem airport and the third struck in the city’s Maelbeek metro station. Belgian media report that at least 13 are dead, and authorities are saying there are dead at both sites.

Van Leeuw says “one attack was probably done by a suicide bomber.”
