ABC News:

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.

There are no reports of fatalities at this point, the official added.

The nature of the device was not immediately clear but the bomb squad was called in for fear of additional explosives in the area.

Belgian military and police are responding to the incident.

The Daily Mail reports:

One suspect has been shot by the military, a senior Belgian law enforcement official has said. There are no other casualties.

He was allegedly carrying a backpack and a belt of explosives and was ‘seriously injured’ after he was ‘neutralized’, local media reported.

The Belgian capital’s Grand Place, a major tourist site, was evacuated along with the station about 656 feet away.

Federal police have confirmed the blasts and say soldiers opened fire on man.

One witness said he was ‘lucky to be alive’ after something that sounded like a ‘bomb’ allegedly went off near him.

Ludoivic Hampton wrote: ‘When you’re walking through central station and something that looked and sounded like a bomb goes off 30 metres away from you.

‘I’m lucky to be alive.’

According to a witness, the suspect shouted ‘Allahu Akbar!’ reports AFP:

Another day, another attack on the West by the ‘religion of peace’, but the real tragedy here is the ‘Islamophobia’ this explosion will cause. Europe will respond by flooding themselves with more Muslim migrants and condemning anyone who dare speak up against Islamic terrorism.

Story still developing. TGP will update as more information becomes available.
