Two people have been shot dead in the Belgian capital Brussels on Monday evening, police have said.

The gunman fled the scene and is still at large. Prosecutors say they are treating the shooting as terrorism.

Reports said the victims were Swedish. Sweden are playing Belgium in a Euro 2024 qualifier, but it is not known if the victims were there for the match.

A video posted on social media of an Arabic-speaking man claimed he carried out the attack in the name of God.

The man in the clip added he has killed three people. The Federal Prosecutor’s office has confirmed it has seen the video but cannot confirm he is the gunman.

The video and other footage of the attack is being verified by the police.

Federal prosecutors in Belgium have since told Newsmen that a terrorism probe has been opened following the shooting on the Boulevard d’Ypres.
