Brussels bombed by terrorists, leaving at least 30 killed, 230 wounded

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Heightened security is felt in the streets and transport systems in major cities in the United States following the deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium Tuesday.

Mayhem ensued at the international airport in Brussels following a bomb explosion.

This was just one of the three blasts that ripped through the Belgian capital Tuesday morning. Two at the airport and one at the subway station near the European Union headquarters.

So far, officials said at least 30 have been killed and 230 more wounded.

As medical teams rushed to the scene, a suspicious package was discovered at the airport.

Smoke billowed from the outside as authorities detonated the package which turned out to be another bomb.

Terror group ISIS said its fighters were responsible for the attack, citing Belgium’s participation in the international coalition against the Islamic State.

In Cuba, US President Barack Obama delivered a swift response in support of an ally under attack.

“We will do whatever is necessary to support our friend and ally Belgium, in bringing to justice those who are responsible, and this is yet another reminder that the world must unite,” said Obama. “We must be together, regardless of nationality or race or faith, in fighting against the scourge of terrorism.”

Early reports showed three American missionaries were among those injured in the attacks.

On US soil, authorities in different cities announced that they were stepping up security.

More law enforcers were visible at the O’Hare Airport in Chicago, Logan Airport in Boston and the JFK in New York.

Despite the jitters, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city will not be cowed by terrorists.

“We refuse to be afraid and we refuse to change who we are,” said de Blasio. “35,000 members of the NYPD all acting as one to protect the people of this city. The terrorists, by definition, try to use death as their tool, their aim is to spread death. We answer them with life.”

As Belgian authorities conduct raids around Brussels, authorities released an image of the suspects in the fatal attacks.

    TRUMP is correct,close the border,stop the migration of Muslims,double down Muslim ban after Brussels attack. The next election is the turning point for America, if we go TRUMP, we might just SAVE America and have traditional America back again.If we go for Hillary Clinton, all is lost, its over, it will be the most despotic criminal regime in American history. Watch Youtube:”Muslim Demographics”says due to multibreeding, America will become Islamic State by 2040 or earlier. It means, your grandchildren will be wearing burka and sing Stars Spangle Banner in Arabic for Century. Hillary’s girlfriend/secretary Huma Abedin is a daughter of high ranking Moslem brotherhood. As state Secretary, in my opinion, she just wanted to impressed her, so she deposed Mubarak, installed the Moslem brotherhood to run Egypt.If she wins more Moslems coming to America. All LGBT’s being infidels will be thrown out from a high rise building, as being done now in Iraq Syria & Iran..
