Earlier this morning, terrorist attacks took place in Brussels, Belgium.
At least 34 people were killed and 170 wounded after bombs exploded at Brussels Airport at Zaventem and the Maelbeek metro station. After the attacks, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said, "We were fearing terrorist attacks, and that has now happened."
After news of the bombings, many celebrities, including Reese Witherspoon, Kendall Jenner, Khloé Kardashian, Kerry Washington, and Courteney Cox, took to social media to send prayers to those affected.
Reese wrote on Twitter, "On this day, my heart goes out to all the people of Belgium. #PrayForBrussels."

#PrayForUsAll Terrorism is one of the scariest things. It does not function like anything else in this world. The Dalai Lama once said "love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive." The world falls to its knees yet again over terrorism 💔 #PrayForBrussels #PrayForPeace #PrayForUsAll

It has been reported that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks in Brussels. According to an ISIS-affiliated website, ISIS “carried out a series of bombings with explosive belts and devices” in "the Belgian capital Brussels, a country participating in the international coalition against the Islamic State [ISIS].”
Belgian authorities have not yet responded to the claim.
TMZ reports that popular Southern California landmarks, including LAX, Hollywood and Highland, Disneyland, Magic Mountain, and The Grove are all on high alert and have beefed up security since the bombings.
