Belgium: Security tight at Brussels Central Station after bomb attacks

Heightened security measures put in place following Tuesday's bomb attacks in Brussels were evident at the city's central train station on Wednesday. While armed soldiers patrolled outside, police inside the station searched travellers' belongings before allowing them to board their trains.
The Belgian capital is on high alert following the multiple bomb attacks carried out on Brussels international airport and the Maelbeek metro station.
At least 31 people were killed and more than 250 injured in the attacks, which occurred just four days after Salah Abdeslam, a suspect in November's Paris attacks, was captured by Belgian police in Brussels. The so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS, ISIL) has claimed responsibility for Tuesday's attacks.
