Belgian railway station back to normal after false alertComments
At a time of security fears, many alerts turn out to be completely false.
Belgian authorities evacuated part of Antwerp’s Central railway station after a bomb threat on Saturday morning.
According to local media reports, police arrested a man after security cameras filmed a suspicious package being thrown onto the tracks.
Police shut down lower levels of the station and halted incoming trains.
The package turned out to be harmless – a sports bag filled with clothes – and the train service to and from Antwerp was resumed.
