英会話ブログ その804      Terror Attacks Brussels

2016/05/04

Brussels, the capital of Belgium has been hit hard by terrorism.  The IS, the Islamic State, killed at least 34 people and injured, some seriously at least 230 individuals in three bombing attacks during the morning rush hour on March 22.

One suicide bomber blew himself up in a crowded Metro subway, killing at least 20 people and wounding many many more commuters on the train.

It was a very powerful explosion, ripping many of the victims to pieces, filling the subway tunnel with horrible screams, thick smoke and body parts.

Another suicide bomber attacked at the Brussels airport, where at least 14 people were killed.  Two bombs were exploded at the airport.  One of the bombs was concealed in a suitcase.  An AK-47 assault rifle was also found at the scene.  This attack was well planned.

As I've mentioned in previous blog, this is World War 3.  It's a very different war than the previous world wars.  Terrorism is like a cancer spreading throughout the world.

In many countries there are terrorist cells.  ISIS and other terror groups are well funded, well armed and difficult to stop.  Any ideas ??                                          (V.C)
