The death toll and number of injured continue to climb after explosions rocked a Brussels airport and metro station this morning. The current number of dead are 34 and those injured from the blasts number close to 200 already:

FOX NEWS – At least 26 people were killed and more than 100 injured as coordinated terrorist suicide bombings rocked the Brussels airport and subway system during rush hour Tuesday morning in the Belgian capital.

The attacks at Zaventem Airport and the metro station in the heavily Muslim section of Molenlbeek were almost immediately confirmed as terrorism. The attack at the airport was reportedly accompanied by shouts in Arabic and gunfire, and an unexploded suicide belt was reportedly found in the aftermath.

“What we feared has happened, we were hit by blind attacks,” said Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel.

“We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war.”

The attacks, which Belgian authorities said were suicide bombings, came four days after the main suspect in the November Paris attacks was arrested in Brussels, and even as Brussels was braced for new attacks.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. A source told Fox News that a credible ISIS social media account posted the message, “Mosul revenge for the Kuffar capital Brussels,” but it was not definitive that the terror group was behind the attacks.

Here’s a couple of infographics that show where the bombing took place at the airport:
