People were slowly trickling out of the De Brouckère metro station in downtown Brussels this morning, despite yesterday’s bomb blast ripping through the station just four stops down the line.
Some were nervous, some tearful, few wanted to share their experience.
Soldiers and police were searching passengers’ bags on the way into the station, while one stop further along the line at Central Station, long queues of people waited to be security cleared before making their way to ticket desks and platforms.
