After the deadly bomb attacks in Brussels killed dozens Tuesday morning, people took to the streets to scrawl messages of solidarity and peace on the city's streets.

Hours after bombs exploded at the Brussels airport and one of the city's metro stations, killing at least 31 people and wounding dozens of others, the chalk messages began to appear in the square near the Brussels Stock Exchange.

The bomb attacks came a few days after European security officials arrested a key suspect in the November attacks in Paris.

After his arrest on Friday, suspect Salah Abdeslam told authorities he had created a new network and planning new attacks.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Tuesday’s bombings in Brussels.
