This is just breaking now. There was apparently some sort of incident at a train station in Brussels. Witnesses are reportedly recounting hearing "loud bangs" and seeing some sort of "fiery explosion" (also described as small?).

It appears that law enforcement has the situation contained whatever it may be. Looking for more now.

EDIT:

Telegraph - Traffic halted in Brussels after 'small explosion' at central train station


Traffic has been halted following what police described as a "small blast" at Brussels central train station, according to local media. There is a large police presence at the station but there are no further details at this stage. According to Belgian media, a man wearing an explosive belt was "neutralised" by police, who are yet to confirm this.

Still no problems in Europe. Don't be Islamophobic. If you don't want to die, you're living in fear.

Don't jump to collusions people. Probably just an Amish extremist fed up with folks using electricity.

ABC is saying the subject was shot by "Belgian military" and twitter is already blowing up with claims that witnesses are saying the subject shouted Aloha Snackbar...

Hopefully that flaming guy is just the would-be terrorist...


If so, he's getting a preview of his afterlife

Off topic, but what's up with that poster with the yak or buffalo or whatever it is?

They can't translate "party animal" into French

A police spokesman told the agency: "There was an accident at Central Station. There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene. "At the moment, the police are in numbers at the station and everything is under control."

Could it be that a home-made fuse went off prematurely ?

Neutralized.

That is their term. Armed guards put an end to it real quick. Thankfully.

I hope it did fail and the piece of # terrorist was the only fatality and I hope it was very slow and painful

Looks pretty neutral in the blazing photo above.
He either had a suicide belt on, or they shot him with a flamethrower.

No doubt. If it is as it appears, that would be the second best result behind no injuries and the terrorist being captured so that he could be questioned by law enforcement and maybe roll over on any cohorts.

No the best results is no injury to inocents but the terrorist surving with server burns that cause a lingering painful death giving the police enough time to queastion it.
