A man carrying a belt with explosives was “neutralized” at Brussels Central Station late Tuesday, according to Belgian news agency Belga.
Axar.az reports citing Anadolu news.
Federal prosecutor Eric Van der Sypt said at a news conference at the train station the incident is considered “as a terrorist attack”.
A small explosion was also heard, Belga reported.
"There were no further victims”, Sypt later confirmed the attacker was dead.
The police and military have taken measures in the surrounding areas, and roads near the station were closed to vehicle traffic and pedestrians. Police helicopters also flew above the area.
Tight security measures were also taken in areas near the Grand Palace tourist attraction.
The country's threat level remains at 3.
Terror attacks at Belgium’s Zaventem airport and Maelbeek metro station in March 2016 killed 34 people.
