Brussels: Brussels will hold a minute's silence today, a day after deadly attacks killed around 30 people, the Belgian capital's top official said.

"I invite the people to observe a minute of silence at midday in tribute to the victims of the 22 March," said Rudi Vervoort, the head of the Brussels region.

Belgium's King Philippe and Prime Minister Charles Michel would observe the minute of silence in the so-called European quarter, where the European Union's institutions are located, near the site of the attack at the Maalbeek metro station, a statement from the royal palace said.
