LONDON: Five years since a bombing by Daesh killed 32 people in Belgium, the country and its royals have commemorated the occasion, paying tribute to the lives lost.

King Philippe and Queen Mathilde laid a wreath in Maelbeek metro station in Brussels and held a minute’s silence at 9:11 a.m. — the exact time the bomb detonated on March 22, 2016.

They also met with survivors and their relatives at an airport in the city where two other Daesh suicide bombers detonated explosives that day.
