KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Tuesday strongly denounced terrorist attacks in Brussels, the capital of Belgium, in which 26 people were reported dead and scores of others wounded.

At least three explosions rocked Brussels, where NATOinfo-icon is headquartered, killing 15 people and injuring 55 another on a train and at least 11 others were killed in two explosions at the airport, with many others injured.

President Ghani in a statement said Tuesday’s blasts showed terrorism had no borders and was not restricted to a specific region. “Terrorism is the enemy of the entire humanity.”

“The people of Afghanistaninfo-icon have been the victims of terrorism since decades and they understand the pain of the people of Belgium at this hour,” a statement from the Presidential Palace quoted him as saying.

Ghani extended his condolences to the government and the people of Belgium in the aftermath of the deadly attacks.

The attacks prompted a lockdown of the Belgian capital and heightened security across Europe. Two explosions targeted the main hall of Zaventem Airport, with a third hitting the Maalbeek metro station, near the European Union's main buildings, just as commuters were making their way to work in rush hour.
