Tributes to the victims and support for their loved ones is increasing in the capital, after Tuesday’s bloody attacks.
A minute’s silence will take place on Wednesday at midday CET at various Brussels locations. The Brussels government asked the population to observe a minute’s silence on Tuesday evening.
The Brussels executive will gather, together with STIB (the Brussels public transport company) staff, at the Delta depot for the metro and bus networks.
At the time of writing, the sovereigns as well as the Prime Minister, also intend to participate in a minute’s silence around the Rond-Point Schuman area in Brussels. Yvan Mayeur, the Mayor of Brussels City Council (thus having responsibility for the district in which the Maelbeek station is located), appealed on his Facebook page for all Brussels inhabitants to observe a minute’s silence in memory of the victims, on Wednesday March 23 at midday at the Brussels Stock Exchange.
