In the immediate aftermath of yet another terrorist attack in Europe, social media has reacted to show their solidarity with the victims, the wounded, and the people of Brussels.
The attacks which have reportedly claimed the lives of 13 people at Brussels Airport, and a further 10 at Maelbeek Metro Station during rush hour this morning, were carried out by what is suspected to be suicide bombers who shouted in Arabic before the blasts.
