Flags at half-mast for Belgium attack


Following today’s terrorist attack in Belgium, flags at all Government posts will fly at half-mast until tomorrow evening.

The move pays tribute to those who lost their lives in the suicide bombing at Brussels Airport this morning, and follows the arrangements of the UK.

Earlier today Michael Dunkley, the Premier, expressed his sympathy for those affected by the tragedy.

He said: “The impact of these kinds of attacks is felt beyond the shores of the affected countries and, on behalf of the Government and people of Bermuda, our thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and injured as they confront the sad reality of these life-changing events.”

Flags in Bermuda will fly half-mast until 8pm tomorrow, or until the post’s close.
