Bombs exploded at the Brussels airport and one of the city's metro stations Tuesday, killing at least 31 people and wounding dozens, as a European capital was again locked down amid heightened security threats. The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attacks.
New Hampshire's congressional delegation have all released statements on the attack.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Belgium following the horrific terrorist attacks in Brussels, which is home to NATO’s headquarters and the European Union. These attacks represent not just an attack on our NATO ally and every member of the alliance, but also an attack on every nation and individual who stands opposed to the depravity, oppression, and violence of Islamist extremism.
“I call on the Obama administration to immediately lead an effort convening NATO members to provide Belgium all assistance possible and work together to defeat radical Islamist terrorists.”
“I condemn in the strongest possible terms the attacks in Brussels earlier this morning. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the Belgian people. The United States will continue to stand in solidarity with Belgium as it battles violent extremism. These attacks strengthen our shared resolve to defeat terrorism. If this attack was carried out by ISIS, it will reinforce the need to completely defeat this heinous terrorist organization. These attacks also underscore the continued need for close cooperation with NATO and the EU to improve our collective abilities to track down terrorists. Defeating terrorism cannot be done alone or in isolation.”
“My deepest thoughts and prayers are with the Belgian people today, and my heart goes out to all the victims injured and killed in today’s attacks and their families. This was an act of pure evil, and we must not allow the perpetrators of such senseless violence to go unpunished. We must work with our European allies to bring those responsible for today’s attacks to justice, and to stop these heartless individuals from continuing to terrorize our communities around the world.”
Heart goes out to victims of Brussels terror attack. #ISIS at war w/ Western democracy. Not the work of "JV squad."— Rep. Frank Guinta (@RepFrankGuinta) March 22, 2016
