Belgian troops patrolling a major train station in Brussels have “neutralised” a person following an explosion.
Police say they are unable to confirm media reports that the suspect was wearing an explosive belt.
The incident has taken place at Brussels Central – the country’s busiest station – and officials say the situation is now under control.
A police spokesman said: “There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene.”
It is not clear whether the person who was shot is still alive – but apart from the suspect, no other casualties have been reported.
Pierre Meys, a fire service spokesman, told RTL that some kind of explosion has happened in the station, but it is unclear what caused the blast.
