  1. Belgian troops in front of the Central Station in Brussels following the attack. Photo: Reuters Belgian counter-terrorism police are investigating the motives of a suspected suicide bomber shot dead by troops guarding a Brussels railway station after he set off explosives that failed to injure anyone. "We consider this a terrorist attack," prosecutor Eric Van Der Sypt told reporters, declining to comment on witness accounts that the man had shouted religious slogans before detonating what witnesses said were one or two devices in luggage. Broadcaster VTM quoted Interior Minister Jan Jambon as saying investigators had identified the man but were not releasing his name. A larger bomb failed to go off, VTM said. Public broadcaster VRT said investigators believed the man had a nail bomb that failed to detonate completely. Although no one was hurt, billows of smoke pouring through Central Station and memories of Daesh attacks in the city last year, and more recently in Britain, France and elsewhere, sent evening commuters racing for cover. Police halted rail traffic, evacuated the site and cleared streets crowded with tourists and residents enjoying a hot summer's evening in the historic city centre between the station and nearby Grand Place, Brussels' landmark Renaissance town square. The Belgian capital, home to the headquarters of NATO and the European Union, has been on high alert since a Brussels-based Daesh cell organised an attack that killed 130 people in Paris in November 2015. Associates of those attackers killed 32 people in their home city four months later. Since then, attacks in France, but also in Germany, Sweden and, most recently, in Britain, have been carried out in the name of Daesh by other young men, many of them locals, raising fears of more violence in a city where almost a quarter of the population of 1.2 million are Muslim. Witnesses spoke of a man who shouted Islamic slogans, including "Allahu Akbar" - God is greatest - in Arabic, in an underground area of the station still busy with commuters making their way home and seemed to set off one or two small blasts. 'Isolated acts' Security experts said Tuesday's incident could have been similar to "lone-wolf" assaults carried out by radicalised individuals with limited access to weapons and training. "Such isolated acts will continue in Brussels, in Paris and elsewhere. It's inevitable," Brussels security consultant Claude Moniquet, a former French agent, told broadcaster RTL. With Daesh under pressure in Syria - where Belgium has been the most fertile European recruiting ground for foreign fighters - he said attacks in Europe could increase, although many would be by "amateurs" doing little harm. He compared Tuesday's incident to that on Paris' Champs-Elysees avenue a day earlier, when a man was killed when he rammed his car, filled with explosive and weapons, into a French police convoy. No one else was injured. Rail worker Nicolas Van Herrewegen told Reuters that he was heading downstairs toward the underground platforms that serve long-distance and suburban lines running under the city center. "There was a man shouting, and shouting and shouting," he said. "He was talking about the jihadists and all that and then at some point he shouted: 'Allahu Akbar' and blew up the little suitcase he had next to him. People just took off." He described the man as quite dark and with short hair and said he was wearing a white shirt and black jeans. Remy Bonnaffe, a 23-year-old lawyer who was waiting on the concourse for a train home to Ghent, said he was startled by an explosion as he listened to music on his headphones. He took a photograph, which he later posted on Twitter, of flames shooting up from what he thought was a briefcase. There was a second blast farther away, which he could not see, followed by what sounded like gunfire, prompting him to run. "I think we had some luck tonight," he told Reuters. "I'm happy that no one was injured and that this was basically a failed attempt." People just feet from the explosion appeared unhurt and he said he saw no obvious damage to nearby walls. As Prime Minister Charles Michel consulted his security advisers, the national alert was maintained at its second highest level. Michel, who convened a National Security Council meeting for 9am (0700 GMT) on Wednesday, tweeted his thanks to the security forces and railway staff for their professionalism and courage. Mainline trains were running through the station by the morning rush hour, but not stopping. The adjacent metro station was open as normal, the transport authorities said.
  2. BRUSSELS: Belgian troops patrolling Brussels Central Station "neutralised" a person after a small explosion on Tuesday, a police spokesman said, adding that there were no other casualties and the situation was under control. He could not confirm media reports that the person had been wearing an explosive vest and it was not clear whether the person shot was still alive. The station and the adjacent historic downtown area, packed with tourists and locals on a hot summer evening, was partly evacuated as police set up a security cordon, witnesses told Belgian media. The city has been on high alert for more than 18 months since Brussels-based militants carried out attacks in Paris that killed 130 people there in November 2015 and later bombed Brussels airport and the city's metro in March last year. The police spokesman said: "There was an accident at Central Station. There was an explosion around a person. That person was neutralised by the soldiers that were on the scene. "At the moment, the police are in numbers at the station and everything is under control."
  3. Police said they arrested a man outside London's Paddington Station on Monday but added that the incident was not terrorism-related, a few hours after a van ploughed into worshippers near a mosque in the British capital. "Officers have arrested a man outside Paddington for public disorder and possessing an offensive weapon. The incident is not terror related," British Transport Police said in a statement. Video footage posted on Twitter showed officers restraining a shirtless man outside the station before taking him away. Police have said the earlier attack at the mosque, which injured 10 people, appeared to be a terrorism-incident which would make it the fourth such attack in three months in Britain.
  4. Image: Twitter (@jwbergiii) THE HAGUE: A car driver hit eight people outside Amsterdam Central Station on Saturday, injuring two seriously, after being warned about parking illegally, but police said there was no indication that the driver was carrying out an attack of any kind. "The suspect has been interviewed, and it appears not to have been intentional. But we are investigating further," Amsterdam police said on their Twitter account. The Amsterdam incident happened when police approached a black Peugeot which was badly parked, and the driver tried to speed away, according to Dutch media. Two people were admitted to hospital with serious injuries, and others were treated at the scene after the car hit the crowd and then crashed into a wall. Several ambulances and police were swiftly on the scene on the busy streets outside the station in the heart of the canal-lined Dutch capital. The driver was arrested and taken for questioning. The news came a week after three attackers in a van mowed down pedestrians in London before going on a stabbing spree, killing eight people and injuring 48. The Netherlands has been on high alert following a slew of attacks around Europe in recent months, including last month´s Manchester suicide bombing and two recent attacks in London.
  5. PESHAWAR: As part of their assault on grid stations run by the Peshawar Electric Supply Company (PESCO), workers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) ransacked the Sakhi Chasma grid station Saturday night. Protesting ?unfair? load shedding in their areas, PTI workers reportedly damaged the windows, guard room and boundary wall of the grid station. The protesters also forcefully restarted the supply of electricity to their areas. After negotiations between the protesters and officials from the police and PESCO, the demonstrators pulled out of the grid station and went home. Earlier on Saturday, for the second day in running, PTI workers led by the party?s MPA from Peshawar, Fazal Elahi, surrounded several grid stations in Peshawar and demanded the resumption of electricity to their areas. Also on Saturay, PTI workers led by several elected representatives ransacked the WAPDA office in Batkhela, Malakand and damaged furniture and other equipment. They were dispersed after the intervention of law enforcement officials. In a statement, Water and Power Minister Khwaja Asif condemned the PTI workers? assault. He claimed the grid stations being attacked are the same areas from where over 70% of electricity is stolen through the use of kundas. He added that residents of these areas also do not pay their bills.
  6. PTI MPA Fazal Elahi restored electricity of more than 100 nearby places. Photo: file PESHAWAR: The city?s main electricity supplier, Peshawar Electricity Supply Company (PESCO), registered on Saturday a case against PTI MPA Fazal Elahi for barging into a grid station. On Friday, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers barged into Rehman Baba grid station. The workers, under the leadership of PTI MPA Fazal Elahi, entered the station and opened the closed feeders on their own, which led to restoration of electricity more than 100 nearby places. Load shedding woes: PTI workers barge into grid station in Peshawar The workers, led by MPA Fazal Elahi, also chanted slogans of ?Go Nawaz Go? inside the PESCO facility Speaking over the matter, Elahi remarked that the Peshawar Electricity Supply Company (PESCO) had assured the protesters earlier that the electricity crisis will be resolved soon, but lamented that people are still facing 20-hours-long load shedding.

  8. A pair of astronauts will venture outside the International Space Station on Tuesday for an emergency spacewalk to replace a failed computer, one of two that control major US systems aboard the orbiting outpost, NASA said on Sunday. The primary device failed on Saturday, leaving the $100 billion orbiting laboratory to depend on a backup system to route commands to its solar power system, radiators, cooling loops and other equipment. The station's current five-member crew from the United States, Russia and France were never in any danger, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said in a statement. Station commander Peggy Whitson and flight engineer Jack Fischer, both with NASA, will partner for the spacewalk, which is expected to last two hours, the US space agency said. Earlier on Sunday, Whitson assembled and tested a spare electronics box to replace the failed device, which had been installed during a spacewalk on March 30, said NASA spokesman Dan Huot. NASA's last emergency spacewalk took place in December 2015 when two US astronauts left the station to release the brakes on a robot arm's mobile transporter. The ISS, which is staffed by rotating crews of astronauts and cosmonauts, serves as a research laboratory for biology, life science, materials science and physics experiments, as well as astronomical observations and Earth remote sensing. The station, owned and operated by 15 nations, flies about 250 miles (400 km) above Earth and orbits the planet about every 90 minutes. It has been continuously staffed since 2000.
  9. Protesters wave a big Italian flag during a protest against Italy's Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in front of the Italian Parliament in downtown Rome April 5, 2011. REUTERS/Tony Gentile A man stabbed an army officer and a policeman at the main train station in Italy's second city Milan on Thursday, a police spokeswoman said, adding that currently it was not being treated as a terrorist attack. Both officers were being treated in hospital as moderately critical cases, the spokeswoman said. Asked if the incident was terrorist-related, the spokeswoman said, "We don't think at the moment that that is the right hypothesis to explore." Police were nonetheless carrying out "the most rigorous checks", she said, and the suspected attacker, who was born in Milan in 1996, had been detained. The man allegedly drew a kitchen knife when he was approached by the agents who asked to see his identity documents at around 6 PM GMT.
  10. Police gradually began reopening Paris' Gare du Nord train station early on Tuesday morning after earlier evacuating the platforms and cordoning off the area because of a security alert, local police authorities said. A Reuters witness at the scene said there were between 20 to 30 police vans outside the station in central Paris with security forces wearing balaclavas and carrying assault weapons. "End of security checks. Gradual return to normal," Paris police said in a tweet. Authorities gave no other details about the nature of the operation. Security has been stepped up across France because of Sunday's presidential runoff, which Emmanuel Macron won. Over the past two years, the country has been hit by a series of militant attacks in Paris and other cities in which more than 230 people have been killed.
  11. China will begin construction of a permanent manned space station in 2019 after carrying out a successful in-orbit refuelling from its Tianzhou-1 cargo spacecraft, officials leading the project said on Friday. The Tianzhou-1, China's first cargo spacecraft, launched on April 20 and completed the first of three planned docking attempts with the orbiting Tiangong-2 spacelab two days later, state media reported. The successful five-day refuelling, directed from technicians on Earth and completed on Thursday, is a key milestone towards China's plans to begin sending crews to a permanent space station by 2022. "This again announces the ambition and aspiration of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese people, and our resolute confidence in becoming a major space power," the space station project's supervisor Wang Zhaoyao told a news briefing in Beijing. "After completing experimental stage spaceflight missions, we will enter the development and construction phase. According to our plans we will carry out the assembly and construction of China's manned space station between 2019 and 2022." President Xi Jinping has prioritised advancing China's space programme to strengthen national security. The Central Military Commission, chaired by Xi, sent a letter congratulating staff of the Tianzhou-1 mission for "realising our unremitting space dream", according to the official Xinhua news agency. The US Defense Department has highlighted China's increasing space capabilities, saying it was pursuing activities aimed at preventing other nations from using space-based assets in a crisis. China insists it has only peaceful ambitions in space, but has tested anti-satellite missiles.

  14. MIAMI: An unmanned Cygnus cargo ship carrying a load of supplies and science experiments arrived safely at the International Space Station on Saturday, according to live images broadcast on NASA television. Working from inside the orbiting lab, US astronaut Peggy Whitson and her French counterpart Thomas Pesquet operated the station´s external robotic arm to grab the approaching spaceship at 6:05 am (1005 GMT). The Cygnus spacecraft is packed with 7,626 pounds (3,459 kilogrammes) of crew supplies, hardware and dozens of experiments aimed at studying fire, growing food and cancer therapies. After the astronauts unpack the Cygnus, they will reload it with trash that will burn up along with the spacecraft upon re-entry into Earth´s atmosphere on July 25. This supply mission by Orbital ATK is the company´s seventh as part of a $1.9 billion contract with NASA.
  15. PARIS: A man carrying a knife was arrested on Saturday at Paris's Gare du Nord station, causing brief panic days after the killing of a policeman, police sources said amid pre-election jitters. "An individual carrying a knife came into the station, was pointed out to a police patrol which immediately arrested him," one of the sources said. No-one was injured in the incident. Another police source added that the arrest caused a "panic movement" with a number of travellers abandoning their luggage in the middle of the station. The incident came two days after the Champs Elysees killing of a policeman and one day before France goes to the polls in the first round of close-run presidential elections. France remains under a state of emergency following a string of attacks that have claimed 239 lives since 2015.
