President Barack Obama was briefed on the deadly blasts in Brussels as he visited Cuba on Tuesday, and US officials were in close contact with their Belgian counterparts, a White House official said.

"The president was apprised this morning of the explosions in Brussels, Belgium," the official said after the explosions hit Brussels airport and a metro station. "US officials have been and will continue to be in close contact with their Belgian counterparts."
