    More fun to report.

    "A train station in Brussels, Belgium, was evacuated today after an explosion, a senior Belgian law enforcement official told ABC News. Police said the situation is "under control."

    One suspect has been shot by the military after the explosion at Brussels Central Station, the official said.

    There are no reports of fatalities at this point, the official added."

    Looks like the only injury/fatality is the bomber.

    Good that they were intercepted before innocent people were killed.

    It's funny what stories are reported though. We've had an incident in South Wales today where a 4x4 driver by men of Islamic appearance were pulled over by an armed response unit and firearms were apparently seized. This has only made our local news?

    Doubtful, if guns were even involved at all as this is not even being reported by our national media. Guns are legal to own in the UK and I've lost count how many times I've said that. Illegal guns do exist but are becoming increasing rare as WW2 relics are often destroyed when seized, hence why terrorists are running people over these days. The guys in my story threatened people claiming to have guns but nothing has been confirmed whether they had or not.

    This sort of thing highlights why it's important to have strict gun laws for civilians.
