Flights to and from Belgium are impacted and security measures have been heightened due to terror attacks in Brussels that killed more than 26 people and injured at least 130.

Officers with AR-15 rifles were seen Tuesday morning at DFW International Airport. K-9 units were also seen sniffing trash cans and ticket counters.
