Brussels Terror Attacks: Front Pages From Around The World
Commuters are waking up to devastating imagery a day after attacks killed more than 30 people in Brussels
The impact of Tuesday’s terror attacks, which killed at least 34 people and wounded scores of others in Brussels, extends far beyond Belgium. Commuters around the world are waking up on Wednesday to front pages filled with devastating images immortalizing ISIS’ latest attempt to fill its enemies with fear.
Newspapers across Europe, the U.S., Canada and Australia all led with the attacks that struck Brussels’ Zaventem airport and the city’s Maalbeek metro station on Tuesday morning. The entrance of the subway station that was hit is located just a five-minute walk from the headquarters of the European Commission.
Many newspapers filled most of their front pages with shocking pictures from the aftermath of two blasts that struck the airport, which Belgium’s federal prosecutor said were orchestrated by suicide bombers. Several others led with the already iconic image of the three suspected attackers caught on CCTV footage in the airport’s departure lounge. Two of them wore black gloves, which authorities suspect were used to hide handheld detonation devices.
On Wednesday, two of the suspected airport bombers were named as brothers Khalid and Ibrahim el-Bakraoui, Belgian state broadcaster RTBF said, according to reports.
Here are just some of the front pages awaiting readers on newsstands as the world continues to mourn the attacks into Wednesday morning.
