The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, told staff on Tuesday to remain indoors or stay at home after at least one blast rocked a station close to the capital's EU quarter.

"EU institutions (are) working together to ensure security of staff and premises. Please stay home or inside buildings," said Budget Commissioner Kristalina Georgieva, who also handles employee and security issues, on her official Twitter account.
