Gare du Nord station evacuated
COUNTER terrorism units are investigating in Brussels after three police officers were stabbed by an unidentified assailant and the Belgian capital’s Gare du Nord train station was closed due to a bomb alert.
Trains have resumed service after bomb disposal units cleared the station of any threat but investigators are treating the multiple stabbing as a possible militant attack.
One officer was stabbed in the neck, another in the stomach, and a third had his nose broken by an unidentified male who was subsequently shot in the leg.
The attack took place in the city’s Schaerbeek neighbourhood on Wednesday afternoon and the suspect is alive and in custody.
Brussels remains on high alert after multiple bombings struck the city’s airport and an underground train in March killing 32 people.
