BRUSSELS (AP) - More flights are being canceled at the international airport in Brussels.
 
As the airport struggles to get back on its feet following the March 22 suicide bombings, it's now dealing with an air traffic controllers' strike.
 
Tensions over the issues of staffing and pensions have been brewing for months, but the work stoppage came without warning yesterday afternoon.
 
Belgian flag carrier Brussels Airlines says that around 50 of its flights to and from the airport have been canceled.
