THE government has kept Spain on a Level 4 alert following today’s Brussels terrorist attacks.
At least 13 people are reported to have been killed in bomb blasts that ripped through Zaventem airport and Maelbeek metro station close to the city’s EU building.
Many more are said to be injured, with unconfirmed reports of gunfire at Zaventem airport.
Belgium’s federal prosecutor has confirmed a suicide bomber was responsible for the Zaventem blast.
José Manuel García-Margallo, Spain’s Minister Of Foreign Affairs, has blamed the attacks on ISIS.
It is not yet known if any Spaniards were caught up in the exposions.
Spain has been on a Level 4 (high risk) warning since last year’s Paris attacks on the Charlie Hebdo office.
