At least 26 people are dead, and at least 142 injured, after terrorists detonated explosives in multiple attacks across Brussels, Belgium. Disturbing video from the immediate aftermath of the attacks at the airport and in the Brussels subway network shows the horror and confusion that ensued.
Warning: this video is graphic and depicts victims of a terrorist attack both living and deceased.
