PICS: The RTÉ Prime Time Brussels attacks special has got a lot of people talking
It hasn't gone down extremely well.
RTÉ screened an unscheduled Prime Time this evening in the aftermath of the Brussels terrorist attacks, which killed at least 34 people in Zaventem Airport and the Maalbeek metro station.
Miriam O'Callaghan presented, where a number of interviews were conducted with citizens (including Irish people living in Brussels) and experts, as Europe's long-term security plan was questioned.
The show didn't go down well with every viewer though, judging by this reaction.
Ireland is doing little or nothing to stop radicalisation in Ireland. Don't know if a single project to stop extremism here #rtept
