Police in Brussels have opened fire on a auto in the Molenbeek district, as the driver claimed there were explosives in the vehicle. He was detained after police fired shots at the wheels of the vehicle to stop his progress.

Police chased the auto after the driver ran a red light and the vehicle was involved in two collisions before it was finally brought to a halt, Ine Van Wymersch, spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor's office, said.

In breaking news this evening, a situation is now developing in Brussels, Belgium as police have managed to chase down a suspected bomb-laden auto.

"We got the driver out, and he immediately told us that there were explosives inside", a police spokesperson said.
