A Muslim man has been arrested in the Belgian city of Antwerp, after trying to drive a car straight into a shopping street, according to AFP.
The incident occurred the day after the terrorist attack in London, where a man mowed down and killed pedestrians with a car.
According to the initial information, the man was trying to drive a car - at full speed - straight into a crowd at a shopping street in Antwerp, Belgium.
The person was stopped and was apprehended by police, writes AFP. Afterwards, weapons were found in the car, according to the Belgian Gazet van Antwerpen.
Gazet van Antwerpen writes that the man was chased by police before the arrest.
The incident took place around at 11:00 on Thursday. According to Gazet van Antwerpen, the arrested person is known as a radical Muslim.
The incident in Antwerp, located on the coast of northern Belgium, comes a day after a car was driven at high-speed along London's Westminster Bridge, resulting in the deaths of four people - including the driver - and injuring 40.
The terrorist in London first hit several pedestrians with a car on Westminster Bridge. Then he ran towards a policeman - Keith Palmer - and stabbed him to death with multiple stab wounds. The man was then shot by police and later died.
It was also the day Belgium marked the first anniversary of the twin bomb attacks in Brussels, that killed 32 people.
