Antwerp arrest Car drives into crowd


A man drove a car at speed into a pedestrian­ised street in Antwerp yesterday, forcing people to jump out of its path, police said. The car sped away in the Belgian port city, leaving no one injured, but prosecutor­s said police later arrested a man suspected of being the driver. He was named as Mohamed R, a 39-year-old French national of North African origin.

Antwerp police found knives in the vehicle and a canister containing an unknown substance that was being examined, Belgian prosecutor­s said. They added that they had been called in “based on all these elements and the events in London yesterday”.
