almost what i would describe asa a terrorist one-two punch.two ph you have the actual suicide explosion and then as people ase flee that scene, they unfortunately don't realize that as they're trying to flee theflt safety they're fleeing into thee past path of another explosion.n so, again washington has myinonh attention this morning is thatn it does appear there were atr te least two different types off devices at the airport, again,, that speaks to premeditation, ii speaks to planning and it also speaks to other individuals whos are not necessarily killed in k that attack. we are also told that thed t french and the british have both increased their police presencec and all the gate ways intoays io brussels have been shut off. >> 9:19.>> more to come this morning at thi embassy of belgium here ine washington, d.c. the flagsgs lowered to half half staff. sff we'll revisit what's happeningt at the embassy we heard from thm ambassador a short time ago.ime we'll hear more from him comingn up after the break. b it's 9:18. 9:18.
