The Ramadan Bomb-a-thon continued Tuesday with a suspected suicide bomber allegedly detonating up a explosive vest at Brussels Central Station in Belgium in what federal officials are saying was a "foiled terrorist attack."

From The Daily Mail:
A suspected suicide bomber who allegedly shouted 'Allahu Akbar' before triggering an explosive vest at Brussels Central Station has been gunned down and killed by soldiers.

Shots rang out soon after 9pm as police and soldiers moved in 'to neutralise a suspect who was threatening civilians,' in what is being considered a terrorist incident.

Initial reports suggested the suspect, described as being 'tanned and well-built', was wearing a rucksack packed with explosives - while witnesses later claimed he tried to blow up a trolley or a suitcase.

Terrified passengers inside the station ran towards the tracks as they tried to avoid the blast. There were no other casualties reported and police quickly said the situation was 'under control'.

Tourists were among those who fled in panic, and within a few minutes the busy nearby shops and restaurants were shut down.

The Grand Place, the city's most popular tourist spot, was completely evacuated alongside the station 650 metres away because of fears that the man might not be acting alone.
