5 Held Over Blast at Brussels Crime Lab

Five people have been arrested over a fire at crime laboratories in Brussels that officials believe may have been started to destroy forensic evidence. Prosecutor’s spokeswoman Ine Van Wymersch said a car broke through fences at about 02:00 (00:00 GMT). The car was then rammed into a building where forensic tests are conducted, before a fire was started. Police could not confirm if a bomb had exploded. Van Wymersch said the likely aim was to destroy “several files” inside, BBC reported. The building is not yet safe to enter, Van Wymersch said, so it was not possible to fully dismiss reports a bomb had exploded. The five people were arrested near the laboratories soon after the fire was reported, she told a press conference. “The location was not chosen randomly,” she said. “It’s an important site that includes sensitive documents relating to current investigations.” Some 30 firefighters helped put out the fire at the National Institute of Criminology, which media said suffered “significant” damage but caused no casualties.
