Belgium security forces are currently investigating a “suspicious” white powder that was found at a well known mosque that is located close to the European Commission building.

According to Reuters, a person inside the Islamic and Cultural Centre of Belgium called into the local fire department saying that they thought they had found anthrax powder.

“Reuters journalists saw about a dozen emergency vehicles, including police, outside the Islamic and Cultural Centre of Belgium, a large Saudi-established institution including a mosque situated 200 meters from the European Commission.

A spokeswoman for the fire service said it had taken a call from the mosque from a person saying they believed that they had found anthrax powder, prompting the deployment of specialist crews. There was no immediate word on what the substance was.”
