Police nab hostage taker in supermarket
A man who held 15 people hostage in a Brussels supermarket after a botched robbery gave himself up to police, authorities said. “The man turned himself in and nobody was hurt,” a police spokesman said. The incident took place at a Carrefour supermarket in Forest. Police said the suspect was armed with a knife and apparently took the hostages after a robbery attempt went wrong. Belgium has been on high alert since terror attacks in March at the Brussels airport and on a metro killed 32 people.
