Brussels subway attack witness: ‘I heard a huge explosion’


Thomas Bignal, an eyewitness to the Brussels subway attack, says he was at the front of a train when he “heard a huge explosion” from the train in front of his. He says if it had been one minute earlier he would have been on the train on which a bomb exploded, killing at least 20. After living in Brussels for five years, he says he doesn’t recognize the depiction in the American press, of the city being a “hotbed of terrorism.”
