Brussels bombing: Eye-witness refutes Donald Trump's claims the city and Europe are 'unsafe'

An eye-witness to last week's terror attacks in Brussels has rubbished Donald Trump's claim the Belgian capital and, indeed, Europe are 'unsafe'. 

The American presidential hopeful made the comments in an interview with ABC news in the United States. 

He said: "I don't think Europe is a safe place. No, I don't. I think there are a lot of problems in Europe that are very, very severe. When you look at Brussels, the way they've handled things from law enforcement standpoints, when you look at Paris, when you look at so many other places, no, it's not safe."

But French journalist Lisa Louis, who was in Brussels on the day of the attacks, refutes those arguments.

In an interview with Paul Ross, she said: "The authorities and the police here in Belgium are rather relaxed compared to Paris, at least, but it doesn't give me the sensation of being 'unsafe'. I'd rather have a government where you don't feel surveyed all the time when you're walking down the street than one that's not always on top of everything."
