Brussels resident, Richard Medic told CNN, "I think, after the Paris attacks, we were assuming like this would happen. And it was a matter of time." Around 11am, a mile away from the Maelbeek metro station, police and troops hunted down members responsible for the attacks. Two suspects were arrested. One of the alleged mastermind behind the attacks in Paris four months ago Salah Abdeslam, was arrested a day ago. After his arrest, Belgium Interior Minister warned the country of a possible retaliation after the arrest. It was also revealed yesterday, by a secret police dossier that, "there could be up to 90 'kamikazes' waiting to launch suicide bomb attacks in Europe after returning from Syria disguised as migrants."

"A passenger Dries Valaert, 30, who was waiting to get his boarding pass from a check in desk when the blast struck. He said: 'There was a first blast and then ten seconds later a second explosion. It was a big, big blast, the ceiling went down. It was just 30 metres from where I was. I saw people down on the ground and I just went running. I jumped over the security fences towards the departure gates as I thought it would be safer."
'My first intuition was to get out in case their were attackers with guns. I saw a woman around 18 years old with a hole in her hand with blood pouring out and a man with an injured ankle and two people down. There was lots of panic. People were running all over the place." Another passenger, Mr. Valaert, who was flying to a business meeting in Berlin, said he believed the bombs were hidden in suitcases that had just been checked in. He said: 'The explosions were just behind the service desks, they were blown towards us. To me it is the most realistic possibility. I don't think it was someone with a suicide vest.' Below, president Barack Obama took time while on his historic visit in Cuba, to speak about the attacks. See more images and clips below as this story continue develop.
