Brussels on Tuesday woke up to multiple explosions — first at the city’s airport, later at a metro station — that left at least 21 dead and several others injured.

Shots were reportedly fired inside the airport and there were shouts in Arabic before the explosion. There are multiple reports suggesting this could be the work of a suicide bomber.

The blasts prompted authorities to shut down the airport and metro system. Local media has been reporting that the toll figure is likely to rise.
