European countries Tuesday vowed to defend democracy against terrorism after ISIS-claimed blasts at Brussels airport and in the EU's institutional heart left at least 30 dead.As Belgium's allies voiced anger and solidarity, Russia and Turkey – themselves targets of deadly attacks in the last eight months – said the blasts rammed home the need to fight terrorism of every hue. In Paris, the Eiffel Tower was to be lit up in the colors of Belgium on Tuesday night in homage to "the victims, their families and the Belgian people," said city mayor Anne Hidalgo.Russia and Turkey said the blasts underscored the global need to fight terrorism across borders.A Russian plane was downed by a bomb over the Sinai Peninsula in October that killed 224 people, while Turkey has suffered more than 200 civilian deaths in six major attacks since July, blamed on Kurdish rebels and extremists. Russian President Vladimir Putin lashed out at what he called "barbarous crimes" and expressed his condolence with Belgium.
