Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says he strongly condemns Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels.
Trudeau has tweeted Canada stands with Belgium and the European Union and his thoughts are with the victims of what he calls the “deplorable” attacks.
Belgian Health Minister Maggie de Block says 11 people have been killed and 81 injured in twin explosions at the Brussels airport.
A Brussels subway spokesman says 15 people have been killed and 55 injured in an explosion at the Maelbeek train station.
So far, Global Affairs Canada says it has no reports of any Canadian citizens being among the victims.
It adds the Canadian embassy in Brussels is “closely monitoring the situation” and is trying to determine if any Canadians have been affected.
In an advisory posted on its website, the federal ministry says Canadians should exercise a “high degree of caution due to the current elevated threat of terrorism.”
Air Canada has also issued a travel alert for customers trying to travel through the Brussels airport, advising flights may be cancelled or delayed.
