    Is bashing Belgium over Paris attacks justified?
    Many people have been killed or seriously injured in terrorist attacks at Brussels international airport and a city metro station, Belgium's PM says.
    Two explosions hit Zaventem airport at about 07:00 GMT, and another struck Maelbeek metro station an hour later.
    The government has not confirmed casualty numbers. Brussels transport officials say 15 died at Maelbeek and media say up to 13 died at the airport.
    Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level.
    The attacks come four days after Salah Abdeslam, the main fugitive in the Paris attacks, was seized in Brussels.
    Prime Minister Charles Michel called the Brussels attacks "blind, violent and cowardly", saying they were a "tragic moment in our country's history. I would like to call on everyone to show calmness and solidarity".

    'Blood everywhere'
    Two blasts tore through the departures area of Zaventem airport shortly after 08:00 local time (07:00 GMT).
    The Belgian prosecutor said "probably a suicide bomber" was involved.
    The Belga news agency reports that shots were fired and shouts in Arabic were heard before the two explosions.
