Brussels Station Explosive – CWEB.com
Today Belgian police say a man was shot by military forces after triggering a small explosion in Brussels central station.
A suspected suicide bomber who allegedly shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ and triggered an explosive vest at Brussels Central Station has been gunned down and killed by soldiers.
Shots rang out soon after 9pm as police and soldiers moved in ‘to neutralise a suspect who was threatening civilians,’ said an investigating source.
Initial reports suggested the suspect, described as being ‘tanned and well-built’, was wearing a rucksack packed with explosives – while witnesses later claimed he tried to blow up a trolley or a suitcase.
