Yesterday the world stood back in horror as suspected suicide bombers raged an attack on Belgium’s airport and metro station, claiming more lives. The terrorist group, I.S.I.S now vow to bring ‘dark days’ to the UK and it’s allies.
At present the death count has reached 34 and approximately 170 injuries, following this morning’s terror attack on Brussels’ Zaventem Airport and at Maalbeek metro station. This afternoon, police discovered an AK-47 Kalashnikov assault rifle lying next to the body of one of the attackers, along with an unexploded bomb belt. The attack at the airport was apparently at an American Airlines check-in desk, and was likely to have been carried out by a suicide bomber.
Unsurprisingly, I.S.I.S claimed responsibility for this horrific attack, publishing a statement on its Telegram account, in which they threaten the ‘crusader states’ (apparently this is us).
Within this vicious announcement, I.S.I.S warns it will bring ‘dark days’ to the states that are allied against them, promising that what will come will ‘be harder and more bitter.’ Even more sickening, the group then add: ‘In praise of Allah who has made our blows precise and helped us succeed.’
In the meantime, Belgium police believe that two of the men behind the airport bombing died, and they are searching for a third suspect. Police have so far made many raids across the country, and so far have encountered a nail bomb, chemicals, and an Islamic flag, all within the Schaerbeek area.
Belgium has no choice but to be on lockdown; all flights have been cancelled; the metro has been closed, and security checks on the Belgium/French bordered have been further tightened.
In The UK, security at Gatwick and Heathrow Airports has been stepped up, and all Eurostar trips involving Brussels has now been cancelled. Prime Minister, David Cameron, has since announced that Britain ‘will do everything to help.’
