Belgium Cancels All Air, Rail Traffic Into/ Out Of Brussels; Military Deployed

<p>In the wake of the three (and now possibly four) explosions that <a href="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-03-22/dozens-killed-and-injured-after-massive-bomb-explosions-rip-through-belgium-airport-">rocked Brussels</a> on Tuesday morning, <strong>Belgium has cancelled all air and rail traffic to the city</strong>.&nbsp;</p> <p>Eurostar has suspended all service to Brussels following a deadly explosion at&nbsp;Maelbeek metro station were more than 20 were reportedly killed this morning.&nbsp;</p> <p>Meanwhile, all flights from the Brussels airport are cancelled.&nbsp;</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">All flights cancelled at <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/brusselsairport?src=hash">#brusselsairport</a> for the rest of the day.

"The blasts add to the woes of the travel industry in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, which already has seen tourism drop after two terrorism attacks in Paris last year, the destruction of a Russian airliner in Egypt, bombings in Ankara and Istanbul in Turkey, and a deadly assault on tourists on a Tunisian beach," <a href="http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-03-22/air-train-travel-slows-in-europe-after-brussels-airport-bombing">Bloomberg notes</a>.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the Belgian army will deploy an additional 275 troops to Brussels as the city will once again come to resemble a war zone in the aftermath of an apparent coordinated suicide attack that authorities believe may well be linked to last week's anti-terror raid that ended with the capture of Paris fugitive Salah Abdeslam.</p> <p>Expect more trouble in Molenbeek over the next 24-48 hours.</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_teaser" width="642" height="393" alt="" src="http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/default/files/images/user92183/imageroot/Airport.png?1458643674" /> </div> </div> </div><br clear='all'/><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/1/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/1/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/2/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/2/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/3/rc.htm" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://rc.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/rc/3/rc.img" border="0"/></a><br/><br/><a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/a2.htm"><img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/a2.img" border="0"/></a><img width="1" height="1" src="http://pi.feedsportal.com/r/247395588878/u/49/f/645423/c/34894/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/a2t.img" border="0"/><img width='1' height='1' src='http://zerohedge.feedsportal.com/c/34894/f/645423/s/4e6eea87/sc/13/mf.gif' border='0'/><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/zerohedge/feed/~4/C_8aT__YrR8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
