Le Monde have revealed a poignant cartoon in the wake of the Brussels terror attacks today.

The French newspaper published their tribute cartoon on Instagram.

The image has already amassed thousands of likes, with it being shared widely across social media.

"Really well done," one Twitter user wrote.

Another wrote: "Our thoughts are with the people in #brussels today. @Plantu (Le Monde) describes our feelings closely."

The cartoon shows a French flag and a Belgium flag crying together, with the dates of both the November 13 terror attacks in Paris and the March 22 terror attacks in Brussels written underneath.
