~~March 22, 2016~~
I woke up this morning, going through my phone messages, Facebook and Twitter, to yet another attack on innocent people going about their business.
At the time of this writing, details are still under investigation.
All I know is what I have included below.
“It Is What It Is” will remain “closed” today in respect and solidarity with the victims of this heinous attack …. another one.
Any activity will be re-blogging of important information.
Another senseless killing of innocent people.
My heart aches.
Humanity is lost.
We have lost our way.
What We Know and Don’t Know
Two explosions, at least one caused by a suicide attack, in the departure hall at Brussels Airport killed at least 14 people just before 8 a.m. local time, or 3 a.m. Eastern time.
About an hour later, an explosion at the Maelbeek subway station in central Brussels, not far from the European Union’s core institutions, killed at least 20 people and wounded more than 106.
Was it terrorism?
Officially, Prime Minister Charles Michel of Belgium said there was no information about whether the attacks were related to the arrest last week of the main surviving suspect in the assaults in and around Paris last year that killed 130 people.
In addition to being the seat of European Union government and the capital of Belgium, Brussels has become a focus of counterterrorism investigations, notably since the Paris attacks.
Officials have also been concentrating on a particular Brussels neighborhood in an investigation of an Islamic State recruitment network.
Who did it?
No claims of responsibility have been reported.
What is Brussels like now?
The city, with a population of about one million, is virtually shut down. The Belgian prime minister is asking residents to “avoid all movement” as the authorities brace for the possibility of additional violence.
Flights to and from Brussels Airport, the city’s main international hub, are suspended.
All subway lines on the Brussels network are closed, as are the Eurostar trains that connect Brussels to London and the Thalys trains that link the city to other European capitals.
The European Union complex is locked down. Only employees with badges can approach the building.
“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
I do not own these images.
No intention of taking credit.
If anyone knows the owner of any, please advise and it will be corrected immediately.
