Terrorist attacks rocked Brussels with three separate explosions this morning, killing at least 30 people and injuring more than 100.

New information about the number of people killed and wounded, as well as updates on who is to blame for the attack, are rolling in quickly. We've gathered what we know, but if you want to follow the events as they unfold, here are the sources we're following:

  • Politico Europe, which typically covers the policy and politics of the European Union, is updating every few minutes with new information, reaction from Belgian and European officials, and new information as it comes in.
  • The BBC's live blog is updating regularly with the latest news and links to additional coverage.
  • The New York Times's live updates include both new information and older articles that put the issue of terrorism in Brussels and Belgium in perspective.
  • Because French is one of the official languages of Belgium, French-language news sources sometimes have information more quickly. The French newspaper Le Figaro has a continually updating live blog, as does Le Monde. The Belgium station RTBF has been broadcasting live all morning.
