A gunman has killed two men and a woman at the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels. A fourth person was also seriously wounded.
According to emergency services in the Belgian capital, the gunman arrived by car, exited the vehicle and opened fire on people in the museum before returning to the car and speeding away.
Belgian officials say one person has been arrested at the wheel of his car, although there is no proven connection to the attack. A second suspect fled on foot and remains at large.
The Belgian Prime Minister, Elio Di Rupo, has called on citizens to be “united and show solidarity in the face of this odious attack on a Jewish cultural site”, while the country’s interior minister Joelle Milquet said all indications pointed to an anti-Semitic attack.
