A man claiming to be part of al-Qaeda made several calls to report bombs at train stations in Brussels, Ghent, Antwerp, and Leuven. The alerts disrupted traffic for hours, as authorities thoroughly searched the premises, though no explosives were found. Police in Leuven were able to track the anonymous calls to a 33-year old man living in a psychiatric institution in Bierbeek. It is unsure yet whether the man will be prosecuted, as proof of _sound of mind’ must be given.
