Suspect shot after explosion at Brussels train station

21 June 2017

Aside from the man who allegedly wore the bomb belt, there are no other deaths from the incident, Reuters reported.

Gare Centrale is largely underground, located in the heart of Brussels, a few blocks from the Grand Place and the Manneken Pis statue. A spokesman for the Belgian federal police said the suspected attacker is dead.

Social media images showed an intense yet contained ball of fire in a almost empty underground arrival hall.

"There's a lot of military here, but the situation seems to be contained", Aazami said.

People in the area are being pushed away from the scene, and police on Twitter have urged the public to follow instructions given by the authorities.
