Starbucks closed all its stores in Brussels on Tuesday after bombs exploded in that city’s airport and subway, and injured one Starbucks worker.
One of the two explosions at the Brussels airport apparently happened outside a Starbucks store.
Starbucks said that while one employee was hurt, all employees there were accounted for and safe.
“We are deeply saddened by the senseless acts that have taken place in Brussels today,” a Starbucks news release said. “This store and all other Starbucks stores in Brussels will remain closed until further notice.”
