On Tuesday, several explosions were reported at Brussels airport. At least 13 people are reported dead with many others injured. Soon after news broke, people started sharing sad pictures of the famous Belgian cartoon character Tintin.
They're also sharing pictures of Tintin's partner Captain Haddock.
Tintin isn't the only Belgian cartoon character users are posting in solidarity with Belgium. They're also sharing pictures of "Le Chat" — or "The Cat" — by Philippe Geluck.
