Belgian police said Tuesday they have "neutralized" an individual who was reported to have been wearing a suicide belt. The statement followed multiple reports of an explosion in the Brussels central rail station. 

The police force stated in a message on social media that the incident is under control. However, it comes as the continent sits on edge following a series of terror-related incidents in the U.K. during recent months, which themselves followed a wave of earlier attacks in continental Europe, including in Brussels.
