The Belgian King and Queen observed a minute’s silence along with members of the parliament for a memorial service following the attacks at the city’s airport and metro station.

A wreath was laid in memory of the victims of the March 22 attacks that killed at least 31 people.

Speaking just before a minute’s silence, Prime Minister Charles Michel, warned that there would be no impunity over the attacks.

“I want to say it’strongly. There will be no impunity. The government and the competent authorities will do their utmost to shed light on both these attacks and all the related events. There should not be any grey area.”

Over at the Place de la Bourse in the heart of the city, an improvised shrine was set up in the square where people gathered to observe a minute’s silence as candles were lit and flowers laid in memory of the tragic attack.

Meanwhile, Brussels airport remained shut until at least Monday, with the departure hall sealed off by investigators.

Travellers on the busy Easter weekend are set to be diverted to Antwerp, Liege and the northern French city of Lille.
