Gorj registered van puts Belgian army in alert

A Romanian van registered in the Gorj County caused a security alert in Belgium. The vehicle, with license plates issued by the Gorj County, made the Belgian army go on terror alert on Tuesday night. The vehicle looked like it had been abandoned in a motorway parking near Charleroi. It had opaque windows and was visibly overloaded, so customs officers called the bomb squads. First, the Belgians brought a metal detector from an airport, which indicated the presence of suspect materials, similar to explosives. After checking the interior of the van, the Belgian bomb experts found nothing dangerous inside. Belgian authorities have not identified the van’s owner, yet.
