Brussels bombings in 2016, news and some aftermath

On the 22nd of March, 32 people were killed and many more seriously injured in two terrorist attacks in Brussels. As I was living in the city on that time, I covered the issue for a bunch of Finnish newspapers. 

Later on I also wrote a more comprehensive story about the neighborhood of Molenbeek, which has become known in the media as ‘jihad central and an absolute no-go-zone’. I wanted to look at the area from a different, more truthful point of view. A few days after the article in Sunnuntaisuomalainen, the New York Times published a similar story… :)

My first news piece on terrorist attacks in Brussels can be found here.
