Belgium Terror Fears Boy Fourteen Found With Bombs

From Express:
POLICE arrested a 14-year-old boy whose rucksack was packed with explosives amid fears of an imminent terror attack at a major railway station in Europe’s “jihadi hotspot”.

The swarmed onto a construction site near Molenbeek train station, Belgium, after they saw plumes of smoke rising from one of the skeleton buildings.

Four teenagers were discovered inside, one of whom was allegedly carrying a deadly cargo of homemade bombs in his back pack.

The 14-year-old was also in possession of a bottle with the words “Allah Akbar” engraved into it, according to police.

Armed police searched the child’s home and found more bomb-making equipment.

The teenager’s computer was confiscated and he was found to have searched online for “how to make a bomb”, Belgian police claim.

He allegedly told police that he wanted to make a bomb because he is interested in video games and chemistry.

Police have detained the child, who has no previous criminal convictions, as he awaits trial.

Brussels public prosecutor Ine Van Wymersch said: “The profile of the 14-year-old is worrisome and that is why the prosecutor's office has asked for his placement.

“A placement for possession of explosive substances was requested, in a context where this young person seems to be disturbed by his video games.”

Molenbeek shot to notoriety in the wake of the Paris and Brussels terror attacks as it emerged as a hotbed of radical Islamic terror.

Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the mastermind of the deadly Bataclan attack, was raised in the city and police carried out a series of door-to-door raids following the bloodshed, unearthing a jihadi terror ring.

Belgium has a population of just 11 million and under half a million Muslims, yet it has produced more jihadi fighters per capita than any other country in Europe.

Between 350 and 440 Belgians have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq.
