New Delhi, March 22 (IANS) Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday expressed shock and deep concern over the terror attack at the airport and metro in Belgium’s capital Brussels.

Condemning “unequivocally” the terror attack that has so far resulted in 23 deaths, Gandhi said “such cowardly acts can never defeat the resolve of the entire world community to fight terrorism in all its manifestations”.

The Congress president said her party and the entire country stood with the people of Belgium in this hour of crisis, her party said in a series of tweets.

“She hoped and prayed that the casualty figures and the number of injured remain low,” a party tweet said.

Two massive explosions shattered Belgium’s Zaventem airport on Tuesday morning, four days after the arrest of a Paris terror attack suspect in Brussels.
