The Foreign Ministry (Wisma Putra) said no Malaysians were injured in the bomb blasts that claimed 34 lives in the Belgian capital of Brussels yesterday.

The Malaysian Embassy in Brussels will continue to monitor the situation, the ministry said in a statement here.

Wisma Putra said the Malaysian government strongly condemned the bomb attacks.

"In this sad times, Malaysia stands united with the victims' families, the government and people of Belgium," the statement added.

Local media in Belgium reported that two explosions took place at Brussels Airport departure hall and one explosion at a metro subway station.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said he was shocked and appalled by the bomb attacks in Brussels that claimed at least 34 lives.

He said the attacks were a reminder of the need for countries to unite and counter the threats posed by extremism.

"The thoughts and prayers of all Malaysians are with the victims and their families," he said in his Facebook and Twitter accounts last night.
