Europe freezes air, rail links with Brussels

An armed policewoman gestures in Frankfurt Airport in western Germany, on March 22, 2016Airlines cancelled hundreds of flights and European railways froze links with Brussels Tuesday after rush-hour bomb attacks killed around 35 people in the city’s airport and a metro train, sparking a broad security response. Belgium locked down the capital, home to the headquarters of the European Union and NATO, and imposed its highest level of security alert after the explosions, which killed about 14 people in the airport and another 20 in the metro, according to authorities in Brussels. As passengers fled the smoking airport and the city-centre Maalbeek metro station, transport operators shut down the airport, metro system, buses, trams and major railway stations in the capital.
