Am 22. März jähren sich die Anschläge in der belgischen Hauptstadt zum ersten Mal. Am Brüsseler Flughafen und in der Metrostation Maelbeek im Europaviertel wurden vor genau einem Jahr zahlreiche Menschen Opfer der Anschläge.

Ein Jahr später gedenkt die Hauptstadt den Opfern und deren Hinterbliebenen. Unter anderem hat das belgische Königspaar zusammen mit u.a. EU-Kommissionspräsident Jean-Claude Juncker, EU-Ratspräsident Donald Tusk und EU-Parlamentspräsident Antonio Tajani ein neues Denkmal für die Opfer der Anschläge im Herzen des Europaviertels eingeweiht.

Wir gedenken an diesem Tag den Opfern der Attentate und sprechen den Angehörigen unser tiefstes Mitgefühl aus.
