Tuesday’s deadly terrorist attacks in Brussels are hitting even closer to home for Norwich City.

Canaries striker Dieumerci Mbokani was at Zaventem Airport in Brussels when the attacks happened, though he is fortunately safe and was not near the explosions.


The on-loan Dinamo Kiev striker was unharmed but shaken by the tragic events at the airport, in which a number of people were killed or injured.

The Club is in constant dialogue with Dieumerci, who has now returned home to be with his family.

Just horrifying stuff for Mbokani and the Norwich team, let alone the people of Belgium.

The Belgian national team canceled its practice and French authorities admitted they have big security concerns for this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France.

The DR Congo national has four goals in 19 appearances for Norwich this season.
