An artist has installed a memorial sculpture near the EU headquarters in Brussels to mark the recent terror attacks in Europe and Africa.

Jean-Henri Compere will unveil the metal sculpture on the first anniversary of the March 22 Brussels attacks.

The artwork by the Belgian artist, titled Wounded But Still Standing In Front Of The Inconceivable, was constructed from a pair of steel slabs raised skywards in an expression of hope.

On March 22 2016, 32 people were killed in separate attacks on the Brussels airport and metro.

Mr Compere’s work seeks to honour the victims of other mass attacks that have shaken Europe and Africa, including the ones in Paris and Nice, France; Bamako, Mali; and Sousse, Tunisia, during the past two years.
