A man suspected of setting off a bomb at Brussels Central Station on Tuesday has been identified as a 36-year-old Moroccan from a city district that has spawned a number of jihadist attackers.
The suspect came from Molenbeek and was carrying a bomb armed with nails and gas canisters, officials said.
He was shot and later died after the explosion, which is being treated as a terrorist attack.
He was known to police but had not been linked to terrorism, reports said.
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel told reporters that a “terrorist attack had been averted” at the station.
