If this was an attempt at a terrorist attack, it doesn’t sound like it went very well for the terrorist, fortunately.
A train station in Brussels, Belgium, was evacuated today after an explosion, a senior Belgian law enforcement official told ABC News. Police said the situation is “under control.”
One suspect has been shot by the military after the explosion at Brussels Central Station, the official said.
Several Belgian officials told ABC News that the suspect was wearing what appeared to be an explosive belt, but authorities have yet to confirm whether it was real.
There are no reports of fatalities at this point, a senior Belgian law enforcement official said.
Eyewitness Arash Aazami told ABC News he heard two explosions and gunfire. He was sheltering inside a restaurant as he told ABC News there was a heavy presence of military, ambulances and police.
