their time. also at a subway station at least dossen people have been killed. many, many have been injured. we're seeing some of the horrible images on twitter and facebook and other social media outlets. >> a important city in europe. seat of the european union and nato in course of belgium and it was there a couple of days ago that one of the chief suspects, only surviving suspect from the ferris terrorist attacks salah wases finally caught and arrested. let's go to robert moses he's in the newsroom now with the latest. robert welcome this death toll has been rising all morning. where does it stand right now? >> ben and juliet safe to say right now at least 13 people have died in the explosions in brussels and fluctuated. the death toll in the metro, subway attack is unclear. but 13 people according to
in that had attack at the airport. latest twoments. first of all belgium is on highest alert level perhaps this is a reflection of what you mentioned at the top the link with the paris terrorist attackses with the border between france and belgium has now been closed. and so we know that the attackers paris attackers had moved fairly freely in between those two countries and perhaps now that the border has been closed that's an acknowledgement of that reality and border between transand belgium now shutdown. let's recap what we know. first begin with this airport attack that took place around 8:00 this morning in departure hall at brussels airport. twin explosion which is according to reports were proceeded by shouting and arabic but gun shots.
35 injured took place near american airlines check-in desk. all of its employees have been accounted for and none of the employees were injured so that's good news from american airlines. bloody people seen walking away from the airport. with stains on their clothes, abandoned luggage all over the place. that took place around 8:00 this morning. then about an hour and a half later, the explosion at the metro station in downtown brussels again the death toll there is still un. at one point ten have died but authorities aring bag away from that. as a result of these explosions all public transportation in brussels has been shutdown. ,obviously, you guys alluded to the fact how important brussels as a city is to be the seat of the european union by airport serving 23% 5 million passengers every single year.
airport would have been when these explosions took place. now a word about the timing, obviously, these blasts come just four days after the capture of sala aldaslam tragged out by the authorities from that apartment in brussels, again, believed to be the only surviving member of the terror ring that or carried out attacks back in november. that killed 130 people. there you see alalam and even though it's not clear which dprowp or groups is behind this mornings' attacks it could be that these are reprizel.
david cameron will preside over one speaking about attacks. franc ois holland will today. is, quote, aware of the situation and we're monitoring it for further developments. but ben and juliet, i think this morning's attacks brussels shows the new age of tri. terrorism where one attack takes place and a few minutes later another attack takes place, and overwhelms the authorities that's had exactly what we saw in france. that is this morning in belgium. 13 dead in explosions at the airport and then a third exe plosion at the metro station in brussels. we don't know what had the death toll is there. we will monitor that for you and any new developments we will let you know.
number you're talking about the severely injured because we're looking on social yeetd right now. picture easer picture of picture of men, women, and children who have blood all over them leaving from the airport area walking the streets of belgium. brussels -- >> presumably that injured going to go a whole lot higher than 35. >> one note about flights you mentioned american airlines statement said employees and contractors accounted for. no reference, though, fun fortunately to their customers like we do know it was around 8:00 brussels time there was a flight in american flight flight 751 scheduled for 9:41 so presumably people checking in and that was bound for philadelphia and that was canceled. a lot of people from new jersey kowrve kowrve on that plane and scheduled to be on that plane. there were two flights from jfk
42 rerouted diverted to amsterdam and since landed. asaina to brussels stull in ther a overt ocean. it will also presumably be diverted because the brussels airport is closed. >> belgium authorities are calling this terrorist attacks and continue to follow this throughout the morning. news. >> nypd has a newen play to stop the city. >> announcing it today as a matter of fact. kerry drew joins us live from gramercy. kerry, good morning. >> good morning to both of you. it's been a disturbing trend the past couple of months. stabbings and slashings on the rise across the city. later morning as you said mayor and police commissioner will team up to announce a new plan to address this problem. >> police commissioner bill bratton it testified city hall budget hearing monday and questioned about a recent spike in slash physician across the city. >> in this issue it has increased, and what will be attempting to do is identify
