NATURAL- ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Metro passengers evacuated a train in an underground tunnel in Brussels on Tuesday (March 22) after a blast tore through a rush-hour train in the Belgian capital. People were heard screaming as they disembarked in a dark tunnel. Belgian media say at least 10 people were killed. Injured people were seen being treated outside Maelbeek station, while armed officers evacuated the surrounding streets. Maelbeek is close to European Union institutions. Earlier at least 11 people were killed and dozens injured by a blast at Brussels airport, Belgian media reported. All public transport in Brussels was shut down, as it was in London during 2005 militant attacks on the underground that killed 52. A further 225 soldiers were sent into the city and the Belgian Crisis Centre, clearly wary of a further incident, appealed to the population: "Stay where you are"
