Video: Shocking footage shows aftermath of explosions in Brussels

Video broadcast on Belgian TV shows the devastation and fear caused by the bomb attacks on the airport and Metro in Brussels this morning.

The footage, broadcast by RTL Belgium, shows the aftermath of the terror attacks today.

 A suicide bomber struck first near the American Airlines desk at Brussels airport, with local media reporting that shots were fired amid shouting in Arabic.

The explosion on the Metro was near European Union buildings and the US embassy.

Broadcaster RTBF reported 20 people were killed following the explosion at Maelbeek metro station, while 14 died in a suicide attack at the airport.

The number of injured people in both attacks is believed to be 170.

The attacks, condemned as "blind, violent and cowardly" by Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, came after the arrest in the city last week of terror mastermind Salah Abdeslam, who plotted November's Paris atrocity from the notorious Molenbeek suburb of Brussels.
