Dozens of people were killed and many others injured after three explosions rocked the airport and a metro station in Belgium’s capital.

Here’s what we know:

  • Two explosions hit Brussels Airport and one at a metro station during the morning commute in the city.
  • The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
  • The attacks at the two locations took place a little more than an hour apart and were apparently coordinated.
  • So far, more than 30 people have died in the attacks.
  • Authorities released the photo of a suspected attacker, who is thought to be still at large.
  • The attacks came days after the key suspect from last year’s Paris attacks was arrested in Brussels.
