Zimbabwe national team’s chief striker Knowledge Musona survived three explosions that ripped through the Belgian capital of Brussels on Tuesday- killing more than 26 people and wounded 130, according to Belgian media.
The bombings occurred few hours after the Belgian based man had left the airport. Of the two explosions at the airport, at least one was a suicide bombing, Belgian federal Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw said.
A blast happened there outside the security checkpoints for ticketed passengers and near the airline check-in counters, an airline official briefed on the situation said.
Belgian federal Prosecutor Frederic Van Leeuw said it was too soon to know exactly how many people died in the bombings. Yet the Brussels Metro Authority reported that 15 died and 55 were wounded in the subway station blast. And Belgian media reported at least 26 people were killed in the two blasts in the Brussels Airport departure hall.
“We were fearing terrorist attacks, and that has now happened,” Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told reporters.
Musona is currently playing for K.V. Oostende in the Belgian Pro League but had to come to Zimbabwe for the Warriors’ crunch Group l back to back encounters against Swaziland starting this Friday.
The Warriors start playing away on Friday before the return leg on Monday 28 March in Harare.
