Brussels Attacks

Cluster for the Study of Religious Violence

Militants carried out attacks in Brussels this morning, exploding two bombs at the airport and another at a subway station during the busy rush hour commute. Dozens of people have been killed and injured by the explosions.


ISIS (the Islamic State organization) has claimed responsibility for the attacks, stating “we are promising the Crusader nations which have aligned themselves against the Islamic State that dark days are coming,” according to the New York Times.

The New York Times provides an analysis of recent ISIS attacks:


Le Soir, one of the major Brussels newspapers, reports on the Brussels attacks in French.

Le Monde and Libération have French language reporting from Paris, which is still recovering from a series of major attacks by ISIS in November 2015.

The New York Times and BBC have extensive reporting on the Brussels attacks in English.
