The main airport in the Belgian capital Brussels was shut down on Tuesday after two explosions were reported in its departure hall, local media report.

Belgian police have as yet confirmed only one death and several injuries. The state broadcaster reported the explosions at Zaventem airport were part of a "suicide attack".
