MLK bridge displays colors of Belgium

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Bridge gateway to downtown Fort Wayne is displaying the colors of the Belgian flag as a show of support to the victims of terrorist attacks there.

“Our bridge is a landmark that symbolizes people coming together and tonight I know the thoughts and prayers of Fort Wayne residents are with the victims and families of Belgium,” said Mayor Tom Henry.

At least 31 people were killed and scores more wounded Tuesday when Islamic extremists detonated back-to-back bomb in the Brussels airport and subway.

The nighttime lighting display will continue for three nights, the city said.
