Explosions hit Brussels Zaventem airport

Reports say shots were fired, shouts in Arabic heard
A series of explosions have rocked Brussels Zaventem airport, reported to be close to the American Airlines check-in area, with a number of casualties. The airport is being evacuated.
The blasts come just a few days after the capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the jihadist attacks in Paris last November. Reports say shots were fired at the airport and shouts in Arabic were heard before the explosions.
Rail transport to the airport has been stopped and people are being told not to go there.
“I was on a break and heard and felt a big explosion – we have from here a view over the departure hall and saw a plume of smoke come out,” Niels Caignau, a Swissport employee, told the broadcaster VRT. “The windows are completely shattered. People went outside in shock. It doesn’t look good.”
