Brussels train station ‘terrorist’ bomber shot dead


BRUSSELS: Belgian soldiers shot and killed a suspected “terrorist” bomber after an explosion rocked a central Brussels train station Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila) in the latest attack to hit Europe. Witnesses said the suspect shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) before setting off the blast, which triggered a small but intense ball of flames in the station hall. There were no other casualties apart from the suspect, who was confirmed dead by prosecutors hours after the attack.Crying rail passengers fled the station after the explosion, with memories still fresh of last year’s metro and airport suicide attacks in the city that hosts the EU’s headquarters.”This is considered as a terrorist attack,” federal prosecutor’s office spokesman Eric Van Der Sypt told a news conference outside the station.
