Brussels’ residents are once again back at it – finding solace against terrorism in cat pictures.
The Belgian city was the scene of a lockdown back in November as authorities attempted to trace suspects behind the Paris attacks, which killed 130 people.
At the time, residents were asked not to tweet pictures which might tip off suspects – prompting a wave of cat pictures to literally flood the social media platform instead.
Journalists have been asked/warned not to report the details of police investigations, over the apparently coordinated attacks at Zaventem Airport and Maalbeek metro station, which have killed at least 34 people and wounded over 100 just yesterday!
So far the authorities have not yet asked the same of the general public. But none of that that hasn’t stopped people already showing their solidarity through their tweets of cats.
