New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen is on her way back to the United States, having left Brussels the day before deadly explosions happened at the city's airport and metro station.

After Tuesday's deadly attacks in Brussels killed more than two dozen people, we're seeing an outpouring of grief and support from around the world.

Like we saw after the November attacks in Paris, many took to social media to express their condolences and solidarity with the people affected — and latched onto prominent symbols associated with the country.

After the violence in Paris, renditions of the Eiffel Tower and the French flag were widely shared.

It’s been a busy few days for John Tousignant.

He’s executive director of the Franco-American Centre in Manchester, which promotes French language, culture and heritage.

Since Friday’s attack in Paris, he’s been fielding calls from people offering words of support.

He’s also been out speaking with those in the French community here in the Granite State about the reaction here in the region.

On Monday, NHPR’s Morning Edition host Rick Ganley spoke with Tousignant.

The attacks on Paris over the weekend shook the world, and although some questions are starting to be answered, there are still a lot of question marks surrounding the event.

On the Political Front is our Morning morning check-in with NHPR's Senior Political Reporter Josh Rogers.

The New Hampshire campaign trail has been mostly quiet since the Paris attacks.  Democrats were in Iowa for their weekend debate; Republicans have been mostly elsewhere since late last week. How much will Paris change things?

Officials at New Hampshire's major airport say employees are on heightened alert in the aftermath of the deadly attacks in Paris.

Manchester-Boston Regional Airport Assistant Director Thomas Malafronte told WMUR-TV that all employees and tenants have been told to remain on a heightened level of awareness after gun and bomb attacks in Paris Friday killed at least 129 people.

Malafronte says the heightened security protocols should not affect the travelling public.
