A small explosion Tuesday evening in the heart of Brussels.
The Belgian federal prosecutor’s office says it considers the incident a foiled ”terror attack.”
Soldiers shot a suspect after the blast at Brussels Central Station, the city’s busiest.
The bomb squad then performed a controlled explosion of a bomb belt the suspect had and was checking to see if there were anymore hazards.
The train station and adjacent historic downtown area, including the baroque Grand Place city square, were quickly evacuated.
It appears the suspect was the only one injured and the damage from the explosion was limited.
Brussels has been on high alert for more than 18 months since Brussels-based terrorists carried out attacks in Paris that killed 130 in France in November 2015 and later bombed Brussels airport and the city’s Metro last year, killing 32.
