Missouri Journalism student Meg Hilling didn't hear the explosion Tuesday morning at Brussels' Maelbeek metro station. But by the time she got to the office of Politico, where she is interning this semester, she saw "tons of police officers and ambulances" streaming toward the station just a few blocks away.
"It's very surreal," Hilling says. "You see events like this on TV. All morning long all we've heard are sirens and police whistles."
