Belgium blast: Explosion near residential building injures five in Antwerp; police rules out terrorism

Brussels: An explosion injured several people and brought down a residential building in the Belgian city of Antwerp on Monday evening, police said, stressing the incident was not related to terrorism.

Belgian news agency Belga reported five people had been injured. Antwerp police said two adjacent buldings might have also been damaged in what state broadcaster RTBF said was a gas explosion.

Belgium has been on high alert since deadly suicide bombings in 2016 and a wave of Islamist attacks across Europe.
