National mourning for Brussels victims

Bucharest: Romania on Wednesday declared March 24 a national day of mourning as a sign of solidarity with the victims of the terror attacks in Brussels.
The flag is to be flown at half-mast and broadcasters will be required to adjust their programmes accordingly, government spokesman Dan Suciu was quoted as saying by Xinhua.
Four Romanians were wounded by bombs in Brussels, among whom there was a minor who is currently in hospital, according to Romania's foreign ministry.

The Romanian intelligence service decided to keep the national terrorist alert level unchanged at blue, a low risk of terrorist attack, as "available information so far does not indicate any direct connection between the events in Brussels and risks against national security in Romania".
The attacks at the Zaventem airport and at the Maelbeek metro station left at least 31 people dead and over 260 people wounded.
