EP building in Brussels, evacuated

The European Parliament’s building in Brussels was evacuated yesterday after fire broke out at a nearby power station, but no explanations were given for the reason of the evacuation, according to two Romanian MEPs quoted by Mediafax. A spokesperson for the European Assembly told the news agency that the fire broke out at a power station that supplies most European institutions with electricity. The spokesperson, whose name was not revealed, said the evacuation was decided for security reasons and underlined that nobody was in any danger. “Everybody was evacuated. Nobody knows anything, if we’re in danger or not, Security didn’t tell us anything, they told us to talk to firefighters but they didn’t tell us anything either,” Social Democrat MEP Catalin Ivan said. Democrat Liberal MEP Sebastian Bodu gave a similar account, saying that he was given no information about why the building was evacuated.
