Awful news from Belgium this morning: Brussels attacks: At least 31 dead at Zaventem and Maelbeek.
At least 31 people have been killed and many seriously injured in attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station.
Twin blasts hit Zaventem airport at 07:00 GMT, killing 11 and injuring 81, Belgium's health minister said.
Another explosion struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later. Twenty people were killed, Brussels mayor Yvan Mayeur said.

Ted Cruz and Donald Trump immediately started trying to capitalize politically on this act of mass murder, of course.
Do you all remember how beautiful and safe a place Brussels was. Not anymore, it is from a different world! U.S. must be vigilant and smart!
