A suspected suicide bomber was shot dead in Brussels Central Station last night. 

Officials in Belgium said the would-be bomber was shot by soldiers after he'd detonated a small device. 

Pictures on social media showed a pillar of flames in the centre of the station. The pictures are believed to have been taken just after the man exploded his bomb. 

No one was injured in the incident, but it is being treated as a terrorist attack. 

Last March, 22 people were killed after suicide bombers attacked Maelbeek metro station and Zaventem Airport, in attacks claimed by Islamic State.
