    Brussels Courthouse evacuated in bomb scare

    Brussels Palais de Justice Courthouse was evacuated on Tuesday morning after there was thought to be a bomb on the premises, reported Belga from the Courthouse. The alarm was raised after a quantity of ammunition was found in a bin in the building, at around 7.30 a.m. The Courthouse was evacuated then sealed, and the Ordnance Disposal Services (SEDEE) entered to retrieve the ammunition for analysis.

    The Courthouse re-opened around 9 a.m.
