    The Brussels metro is running to its normal schedule from this morning (Monday). The resumption went off without a hitch, the STIB spokeswoman, Françoise Ledune, stated from Maelbeek station, which has also reopened.

    All 69 Brussels metro stations are fully operational and the metro is running to its normal timetables, that were in place prior to the attacks. The stations gradually opened from 4.40 a.m. on this morning, Françoise Ledune elaborated. For the moment, station access is restricted to two entrances at each station. The police and army are responsible for security across the network.

    A memorial wall has been erected at Maelbeek so that passengers may express their grief should they wish to do so. On Saturday, victims of the attacks and their loved ones were able to visit the station. Numerous expressions of grief and sympathy were written on the wall, the spokeswoman added. On March 22nd, a suicide bomber blew himself up in the metro, specifically at the Maelbeek metro station, causing 16 deaths.
