“Very sad day for Europe” - EU's Mogherini can not hide tears
22 March, 2016
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Tuesday's blasts in Brussels marked a "very sad day" for Europe, saying on a visit to Jordan it was now suffering like the Middle East.

Speaking from Amman in Jordan, Mogherini said tearfully, "It's a very sad day for Europe as Europe and its capital are suffering the same pain that this region has known and knows every single day, be it in Syria, be it elsewhere. We are still waiting for more
precise news on the dynamics of the attacks in Brussels but it is quite clear that the roots of the pain we are suffering around our region are very much the same and that we are united in not only suffering our victims but also reacting to these acts and preventing radicalisation and violence together".
Dozens have been killed across the Belgium capital after the blasts. Politicians in the country have since announced a disaster plan is in effect, IB Times reports.

Two explosions have been reported in the departures area of Zaventem airport in Brussels today, followed by reportedly three more explosions in the city metro stations.

Unconfirmed reports say 13 people are dead at the airport 10 at the metro stations, with dozens of injured.

Georgian diplomatic representation in the Kingdom of Belgium has launched a hotline for Georgian citizens.
