Belgian police arrested a man on Thursday (23 March) after he tried to drive into a crowd at high-speed in a shopping area in the northern city of Antwerp, a police chief said.

“At about 11 this morning a vehicle entered De Meir at high speed, due to which pedestrians had to jump away,” a police spokesman told a news conference, referring to the street name.

The suspect, driving a French-registered car, was then pursued and arrested by police. Prosecutors said he was a French national living in France and that knives and other weapons were found in his car.

Extra police and military personnel have now been deployed in the centre of Antwerp.

The attempted attack came the day after a terrorist killed three people and left dozens injured in London. 

World leaders stand with Britain after London attack

World leaders unanimously condemned the attack in the heart of London by a man who was shot dead by armed police, with many saying they stand with Britain.

A British man thought to be inspired by international terrorist organisation Islamic State mowed down pedestrians on Westminster bridge, before crashing his car outside the Houses of Parliament. He then stabbed and killed a police officer before being shot by armed police. 

A year after the Brussels attacks, Gilles de Kerchove told EURACTIV.com about the fast pace of development of EU security policy, calling for the “systematic use of biometrics” and “batch comparison” of databases in order to boost security in the Schengen area.
