Before the bombings, several Islamist terrorist attacks had originated from Belgium, and a number of counter-terrorist operations had been carried out there.
In January 2015, anti-terrorist operations against a group thought to be planning a second Charlie Hebdo shooting had included raids in Brussels and Zaventem.A post-reopening target of 800–1,000 passengers per hour was projected, compared to pre-bombing traffic of 5,000 passengers per hour.The delay in the reopening was attributed to extensive damage to the building's infrastructure.The Berlaymont building, which is near Maalbeek station and is the headquarters of the European Commission, was placed in lockdown.Controlled explosions were carried out on suspicious objects around Maalbeek station.
