Activities at Belgian Seaports Unaffected by Brussels Blasts

Activities at Belgian seaports are continuing as usual, according to the latest update from GAC Belgium, following the explosions that rocked the country’s capital earlier this morning.

Brussels Airport is closed and all incoming flights have been diverted to other European destinations, after two blasts were reported at about 0800 hours this morning.

Shortly afterwards, there was a blast at the Maelbeek station in the Brussels Metro system. At least 13 people have been killed in the explosions, Belgian media said.

The city’s bus, tram and Metro systems have all been closed and the city is effectively unreachable by air or road. Eurostar has now cancelled services in and out of Brussels Midi.

According to reports, the country has raised its terror threat from level three to the maximum level four. The cause of the explosions is yet to be determined.
