At least 14 people were killed when two suicide bombers detonated explosives at the Brussels Airport in Zaventem, just outside the city, CNN reports.

The blasts blew out windows and caused the ceiling to fall in. Panicked travelers and airport employees rushed out of the building.

The first explosion occurred near a check-in desk.

Police are searching for one suspect seen in a photo along with two other suspected attackers:
