    Attack Foiled in Brussels Central Station

    Authorities called it a failed terror attack. Police in Brussels yesterday fatally shot a man after he reportedly set off a small explosion at the city’s Central Station around 8:30 p.m. No civilians were injured, but the station was evacuated for the night. Police say the suspect has been identified as a 36-year-old Moroccan man who was known to authorities. Belgium has been on high alert since March 2016, when ISIS claimed responsibility for a devastating double attack on Zaventem airport and Brussels’ subway system that killed 32 people.
