European train traffic disrupted after Brussels attacks

Train traffic across Europe has been disrupted following explosions in Brussels, line operators say.

Eurostar and Thalys high-speed operators say none of their trains are currently running to or from Brussels Midi central station.

Thalys says one of its trains departing from Paris station Gare du Nord was redirected to the French city of Lille, and trains have ceased departing from stations in Germany and the Netherlands.
