A suicide bomber killed as many as 13 people after he detonated an explosive device inside a Brussels airport. Belgian media also reported that 10 more people were killed following an explosion detonated inside a Brussels metro station less than an hour later.

The metro blast took place at Maelbeek metro station, close to European Union headquarters. All metro travel was suspended following the explosion.

Interior Minister Jan Jambon announced that Belgium's terror threat had been raised to its highest level, as witnesses told Belganews agency there had been shots and shouts in Arabic at the airport before the blasts hit the departure hall.

Federal police told Belga news agency that they could confirm one dead, amid chaotic scenes at the airport on the northwest outskirts of Brussels.

"There have been two explosions at the airport. Building is being evacuated. Don't come to the airport area," the airport said on Twitter.

Television images showed passengers fleeing chaotic scenes, with thick black smoke rising from the terminal building, where the windows had been shattered. Another blast was reported at the Maalbeek metro station.

Images on social media showed collapsed floor tiles littering the floor of the terminal hall.

The airport has been shut down until further notice, Eurocontrol, the European organisation for air navigation safety, confirmed on its website.

Public broadcaster RTBF said regional authorities had gone into emergency mode.

Police told Belga news agency that at least one person had been killed and several others wounded.

RTBF said the blasts at the airport on the northwest outskirts of Brussels hit shortly after 8:00 am (0700 GMT).

The blasts come days after the dramatic arrest in Brussels on Friday of Saleh Abdeslam, prime suspect in the Paris terror attacks that killed 130 people in November, after four months on the run.

There was no immediate confirmation of the cause of the blasts.

Europe's main stock markets retreated as the news broke, with London's benchmark FTSE 100 index dropping 0.6 per cent compared with Monday's close and Frankfurt's DAX 30 shedding 1.1 per cent.

Mike van Dulken, head of research at Accendo Markets, said that the "explosion at Brussels airport.
