It has been reported that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks in Brussels. According to an ISIS-affiliated website, ISIS β€œcarried 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.
