Shocking: CCTV Footage of Brussels Airport explosion is fake

BRUSSELS- The CCTV showing the deadly Brussel Airport explosions seems to be fake, Independent.com reveals.

The footage resembles a video of the moment a bomb attack took place at Domodedovo Airport in Russia in 2011.

But the clip, which shows people walking before they duck and flee following an explosion, has been widely shared on social media since the Brussels blasts took place on Tuesday morning.

Witnesses said two explosions were heard inside the departure hall of Brussels Airport shortly after 8am.

VRT news agency apologized on Twitter for the CCTV footage being fake.

Shortly after the airport explosion in Brussels, a blast was also heard at Maalbeek Metro station. Local media is reporting that at least 13 people have been killed and 35 have been severely injured.

All flights at the airport have been cancelled and arriving planes have been diverted.

Belgium’s terror alert level has been raised to maximum.
