Former Ireland and Munster legend Ronan O'Gara has reacted angrily to reports that terrorists have targeted another European city.

O'Gara, who is the defence coach at Racing Metro, and his young family were in Paris on the evening the French capital was targeted by a series of bomb and gun attacks last November.

The former Ireland player took to social media the following day to assure fans that his wife Jessica and their young family were safe, while his team's clash with Glasgow Warriors was postponed.

Speaking about the attack, O'Gara said: " I've never experienced anything like it. I think they (the terrorists) are going after sporting venues, nice theatres, cafes and when it gets to that stage it's not good."

Explosions, at least one likely caused by a suicide bomber, rocked the Brussels airport and its subway system today, prompting a lockdown of the Belgian capital and heightened security across Europe.

Scores of injured people were carried from the scenes, and Belgian media said at least 13 were killed at the airport and a Belgian subway official said there were 15 dead, 55 injured in the subway station attack.

O'Gara took to Twitter to voice his disgust at the latest atrocity.

He tweeted: "Those bastards at it again.. unable to get the head round this again."
