Brussels: Scenes of panic, horror and sheer terror pervaded the international airport of Brussels as two huge explosions ripped through its departure hall on Tuesday morning. Eyewitnesses said it was a bloodbath, with several left dead and dozens seriously injured in the aftermath.  Much of the chaos was captured live on camera.

One of the first videos that emerged on the social media was that of people running away from the airport, with their luggage in hands, to save their lives.

 

Another video captured moments right after the explosions inside the airport.
