Was it a bomb? Not much info on Twitter. Just VUB saying it was controlled by bomb squad. Not sure if it was a bomb or suspicious item blown up as a precaution.
Though this thread is so far off tangent I don't expect a response lol.

How does this relate to "political correctness"? If anything this is a result of bad polices thanks to the U.S and NATO over the century.
I remember the 90s Biggest News Events. Bill and Monica, Mandela Freed, Rwanda, Timothy McVeigh, Princess Diana, ect - Hardly a mention about Muslim Extremists.
A lot IS being done, trust me. But you can't keep an eye on every citizen - that would make us worse than our enemies
These aren't my gods but it's theirs. Just look at what's written on the pyramids they worshipped these gods with death rituals then and they do it now
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, IPA /ˈaɪsᵻl/), alternatively translated as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS, /ˈaɪsᵻs/), is a Salafi jihadist militant group thatfollows an Islamic fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam. The group is also known as Daesh
Isis was worshipped as the ideal mother and wife as well as the patroness of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans and the downtrodden, but she also listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers. Isis is often depicted as the mother of Horus, the falcon-headed deity associated with king and kingship (although in some traditions Horus's mother was Hathor). Isis is also known as protector of the dead and goddess of children.

Okay, no worries. I follow you now. All the same, I don't see how you can pluck a verse from the Bible and make any kind of definitive statement that this is what "322" refers to. At the very best, it's a guess. Nothing more. There is not even reason why the verse reference has to come from Genesis.
Travelling down the road of trying to tie dates to specific verses in Holy Scripture is fraught with pitfalls. Considering the possibilities of who perpetrated these attacks (or at least, who organized them), we are supposedly looking at something to do with "ISIS" and/or its followers/supports. In that case, you could also seek references in the Holy Koran, either on the basis of "22/3" or by using the Islamic calendar. This year is 1437 A.H. which began in mid-October of our year 2015. Today is the 12th day of the month of Jamadil Thani. (Here is an Islamic Calendar
See how complicated this line of thinking can get? Whose calendar do we use? Whose scripture? And does using one calendar exclude the other's scripture? We simply don't know. We can't even be sure if the date has any special relevance at all in this case.
To be fair, considering the major attacks in London were on 7/7/2005, it suggests that at least in that case, the planners took our dating system into account -- if they were looking for any symbolism on that basis at all. But the reasoning could be simpler: perhaps they just wanted to be sure that the Brits and Americans would both recall the same day and month.
As I mentioned, over here in Europe we also talk of "9/11". Because that's what Americans call it -- as is their right for the events that occurred on their own soil. I would never try and suggest they should say "11/9" instead. And as today is 22/3 for us in Europe then if we want to attach it as a "name" for this attack, then that numbering convention should be followed by Americans as well. Fair is fair.
