Brussels bomb alert: false alarm at courthouse @Belga
The bomb threat on Friday morning at Brussels courthouse was a false alert, reports the Bruxelles Capitale-Ixelles police zone.
Police received a call indicating the presence of a bomb inside the building. The courthouse was, however, not evacuated and an audit by security officials did not reveal any suspicious activity.
