Dieumerci Mbokani: Caught in Brussel airport during terrorist attacks

Norwich striker Dieumerci Mbokani is unharmed after being caught up in the terror attacks in Brussels on Tuesday morning.

Brussels Airport was rocked by a double blast while another explosion was reported by local media at a Metro station in the city. Several people are feared dead with many more injured, while several Belgium stars have tweeted their reaction to the horrific events.

Congo international Mbokani, who is on loan from Dynamo Kiev, was at Zaventem Airport at the time of the attacks.

City say the 30-year-old was “unharmed but shaken” by the events in which a number of people were killed and injured.

Norwich added that Mbokani has now returned home to be with his family, and the club remain in constant dialogue with him.

A club statement added: “The thoughts of everyone at Norwich City are with the victims of the atrocities in Belgium today and their relatives.”

It is unknown whether Mbokani would be involved in Congo’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Angola on Saturday and next Tuesday.

Norwich added: “There will be no further statements from the club or Dieumerci Mbokani at this time.”
