This ad­vi­sory fol­lowed a bomb scare at Brus­sels Nord sta­tion, One of Brus­sels’ two ma­jor train sta­tions. The false alarm forced se­cu­rity officers to evac­u­ate trav­el­ers. Hence, the Kuwaiti em­bassy urged its ci­ti­zens to re­main in con­tact at the fol­low­ing num­bers: Hot­line: +32 47777 5801; Em­bassy No: +32 26477950; Em­bassy Fax: +32 26461298; Em­bassy Email: in­foem­bassy­ofkuwait.be

Se­cu­rity of­fi­cials in the Bel­gian cap­i­tal con­firmed that the alert was a false alarm af­ter care­fully in­ves­ti­gat­ing the sta­tion. Brus­sels re­mains on high alert fol­low­ing a co­or­di­nated ter­ror at­tacks at Zaven­tem air­port and Maal­beek metro sta­tion in March, killing 32 peo­ple and in­jur­ing more than 300. The city was also home to sev­eral mem­bers of the cell that at­tacked Paris last year, with the at­tacks in Brus­sels fol­low­ing soon af­ter the ar­rests of key sus­pects. Ma­jor trans­port points, like rail and metro sta­tions, have been guarded by the mil­i­tary since the at­tacks. — KUNA
