Terrified passengers at Brussels Airport have told how there ‘just blood’ everywhere after this morning’s bomb blast and likened horrific aftermath to ‘the apocalypse’.

Witnesses described gruesome scenes inside the terminal in the wake of the suspected suicide blast which has claimed the lives of at least 14 people and left 50 more injured.

Blood-soaked passengers sprinted for their lives as smoke filled the area near the check in desks.

One witness struggled to hold back tears as he described victims who had lost their legs lying in pools of blood in the airport’s main hall.

Alphonse Youla, who was working on a stand putting security wrapping around suitcases, said: ‘I heard a man shout some Arabic words then an explosion.. then a second explosion, a massive explosion, much bigger.

‘It was a horror. I saw at least seven people dead. There was blood. People had lost legs. You could see their bodies but no legs.’

Others described seeing ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ and the ceiling collapsing after two blasts rocked the building.

Just 90 minutes later a blast hit a Metro blast hit the Maelbeek area of Brussels claiming another 20 lives.

Samir Derrouich, who works at a restaurant in the airport, said: ‘The two explosions were almost simultaneous. They were both at check in desk. One was close to the Starbucks. It was awful. There was just blood. It was like the apocalypse.’

Dries Valaert, 30, was waiting to get his boarding pass from a check in desk.

He said: ‘There was a first blast and then ten seconds later a second explosion. It was a big big blast, the ceiling went down. It was just 30 metres from where I was. I saw people down on the ground and I just went running.

Full story.

    The people of Brussels must have really hurt the feelings of the members of the religion of peace, to earn themselves a rebuke. They obviously have not provided enough safe-spaces for the Muslim community, or reduced the constant micro-aggression of Christians against the cultural hallmarks of Islam: theft, rape, mutilation, torture and murder of non-Muslims. This shows a complete lack of understanding of the delicate and refined Muslim Theocratic methods of nation building.

    Peace loving Muslims will continue to provide this type of guidance to the West, until the West welcomes their new Muslim Overlords, and non-Muslims accept their role as slaves of the caliphate.

    Did the Belgians try hashtags and cartoons? Maybe a jobs program for the poor downtrodden followers of a peaceful religion.
    A section of Brussels should be designated a safe space for muslims with coloring books, beanbag chairs, play doh and quiet time for afternoon naps.
