BRUSSELS — Florence Muls, a spokeswoman for the Brussels Airport, says a third bomb has been neutralized at the airport after two other bombs there were believed to have killed 11 people Tuesday morning.

Muls told The Associated Press the third bomb was dispensed of “with a controlled action” once the chaos of the first explosives had eased somewhat.

Elsewhere in the Belgian capital, anti-bomb squads detonated suspicious objects in at least two locations — the Maelbeek subway station and close to Brussels University a few miles further away. Authorities said those two did not contain explosives.

A U.S. official has told the AP the explosives in Brussels appear sophisticated, and investigators will examine them to see if they bear the same characteristics to those used in the Paris attacks last year.

  1. Hey Canada…….at one time, Belgians said the same thing our PM is saying.

    “Diversity is our strength!”

    I guess we all know that this statement is a bald faced lie when it comes to Muslims. To a muslim, there is no such thing as diversity. you are a Muslim…..or you are going to die. Their religion has always proclaimed this.

    And we keep letting them in.

    • Here are some things that cause more fatalities than terrorism:

      – Televisions
      – Cows
      – Elevators
      – Lightning
      – Police
      – Hot water
      – Swimming pools
      – Cribs
      – The sun
      – Furniture

      Yes – this attack is despicable. But banning an entire religion is no solution at all. No matter if it keeps you awake at night – Muslims aren’t coming to kill you.

      Parts of the Koran might say horrible things, but have you read the bible?

      • Partridge, I also have a list

        Belgium – MULSIM TERRORISTS
        Paris – MUSLIM TERRORISTS
        Belsan – MUSLIM TERRORISTS
        9/11 – MUSLIM TERRORISTS

        (keep going, as over the last 10 years, this list numbers almost 30,000 attacks. ALL MUSLIM TERRORISTS)

        Politically correct idiots:

        “The ability of not seeing the obvious”

        You know partridge…sort of like you.
