What You Need To Know

On six occasions this week AlertsUSA notified subscribers via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding terrorism and security threats.

Early Tuesday, AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of reports of multiple explosions at Brussels Zaventem Airport in Belgium. One blast occurred near American Airlines and Brussels Airlines check-in desks, with a second next to a Starbucks coffee shop. A third unexploded bomb was found in a search of the airport and was later neutralized by bomb disposal specialists. Belgium's authorities confirmed that the suicide bombers had detonated nail bombs, which are an anti-personnel explosive device packed with nails, bolt and other small pieces of metal specifically intended to increase it's the lethality of the device beyond that capable by the explosive alone.

The two bombs were believed to have been packed into luggage and were detonated by the perpetrators as they pushed trolleys through the airport.

Approximately one hour later another explosion took place at the Maelbeek metro station in the middle of a three-carriage train near the European Commission headquarters in the center of Brussels, approximately 10 kilometers or 6 mi from Brussels Airport. The effect of the blast was devastating (GRAPHIC) . Between the two attacks, 31 people were killed the including three suicide bombers, and 330 others injured, 61 critically. The fatalities in the two attacks represent 9 different nations, including at least two from the United States.

According to Congressman Devin Nuns, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the bombing appear to have targeted Americans. Nunes said he drew that conclusion based on location of the twin bombing sites: next to stands for U.S. airliners United, American and Delta at Brussels' airport, and at a downtown metro station less than a mile from the U.S. Embassy.

POSSIBLE NUCLEAR PLOT

European media outlets are reporting that intelligence indicates the bombers in the Brussels strikes may have actually been planning an attack on a nuclear power station in the country. Two days after the Brussels terror attacks a security guard who worked at a Belgian nuclear plant was murdered and had his security pass stolen.

ISIS CLAIMS RESPONSIBILITY, THREATENS MORE STRIKES

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attacks (full transcript).

The Islamic State has also issued new threats, warning of "dark days ahead".

Late Friday ISIS supporters released another video showing the Eiffel Tower exploding and crashing to the ground. The video is narrated in English and carries the message; "To you western Kafir, you that meant to fight Islam, vengeance is coming against the new crusaders..."

U.S. WARNS ON TRAVEL TO EUROPE

On Tues, the U.S. State Department issued a travel alert for all of Europe following, warning that "terrorist groups continue to plan near-term attacks throughout Europe." The alert also warned tourists to "exercise vigilance when in public places or using mass transportation, to be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid crowded places, to exercise particular caution during religious holidays and at large festivals or events.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
