In pictures: Tributes to Brussels victims

Belgium is observing three days of mourning after Tuesday's deadly bomb attacks in the capital Brussels.

People carrying candles and flowers gathered in the Place de la Bourse in the heart of the city, in a show of defiance and unity.

Tributes are being paid to the victims near the Zaventem airport and the Maelbeek metro station - the sites of the attacks.

The bombings, claimed by so-called Islamic State, have brought condemnation from around the world.
