Terrorists attacked Brussels during Tuesday morning rush hour, killing at least 30 people and injuring more than 200. A suicide bomber hit the international airport, and another explosion hit a train at the metro station. "What we feared has happened," said the Belgium prime minister. Belgium has issued a level 4 alert and locked down the entire city. The attacks comes on the heels of last week's arrest of a central suspect in the Paris bombings by Belgian and French police.
