Belgian soldiers shot and killed a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels Central Station today


Via The War Files–  Belgian soldiers shot and killed a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels Central Station today, with no other casualties and the situation brought quickly under control. Police said the man set off a small explosion, after purportedly yelling “Allahu Akbar”, which resulted in a small fire. Federal prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt said the incident is considered a terrorist attack. Belgium’s Crisis Centre, which monitors terror threats in the country, said that based on the initial information it “doesn’t see a need to raise the terror threat in the country to the highest level.” Van der Sypt said Belgian soldiers “neutralized” the suspect at the train station immediately after the explosion. He laid there for three hours while a bomb squad checked whether or not he was armed with more explosives.
