Activities at Belgian seaports unaffected by Brussels blasts

Activities at Belgian seaports continued unhindered following explosions that rocked the country’s capital yesterday.

Brussels Airport was closed and all incoming flights were diverted to other European destinations, after two blasts were reported at about 0800 hours yesterday.

Shortly afterwards, there was a blast at the Maelbeek station in the Brussels Metro system. At least 30 people have been killed in the explosions, Belgian media said.

The city’s bus, tram and Metro systems were all closed and the city was effectively unreachable by air or road.

According to reports, the country has raised its terror threat from level three to the maximum level four.
