Mahama condemns cowardly terrorist attacks in Belgium

President John Mahama has condemned the terrorist attacks in Brussels, Belgium, describing it as an act of cowardice.

A series of attacks Tuesday morning struck Brussels airport and the metro system, causing at least 30 deaths, Belgian media say.

Two blasts tore through the departures area of Zaventem airport shortly after 08:00 local time (07:00 GMT).

An hour later, explosions hit Maalbeek metro station, close to the EU institutions. The metro system and airport have both been closed.

The attacks come four days after Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the Paris attacks, was captured in Brussels.

In a tweet hours after the attacks, President Mahama said Ghana stands in solidarity with Belgium adding that the world will not be intimidated by acts of cowardice.

“Suicide bombing in Brussels. Another cowardly attack on innocent civilians. We stand in solidarity with Belgium. We would not be intimidated.”

Meanwhile, Belgian police have issued a wanted notice for a suspect after bomb attacks.

The man is suspected of involvement in the twin explosions which tore through Zaventem airport.

He was seen on CCTV pushing a trolley through the airport with two other suspects.
