As Belgium looks to deal with the aftermath of two attacks on its capital, we look at some pictures emerging from the city.

Scores of people have been killed aftera suicide attack ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels, and another blast hit a city metro station.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel condemned the "violent" attacks as "cowardly" on what he described as "a black day" for the nation.

"What we feared has happened, we were hit by blind attacks," he said

"This is a dark moment for our nation. We need calm and solidarity".
