Brussels shooting: Police shoot dead attacker who killed Swedes

On Tuesday, Belgian police shot dead a man who had opened fire on a group of Swedes in the city of Brussels, killing two and injuring another. The incident occurred in the early hours of the morning near the Place de la Bourse, a popular tourist spot in the city centre.

The attacker was identified as a 25-year-old man from Morocco who had been living in Belgium for several years. He was armed with an automatic weapon and opened fire on a group of Swedish tourists who were visiting the city. Two of them were killed and one was injured before police arrived at the scene and shot him dead.

The motive for the attack is still unclear but Belgian authorities have said that it appears to be an act of terrorism. The attacker had reportedly shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) before opening fire, leading to speculation that he may have been inspired by Islamic extremism. However, no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack and it is not known if he had any links to any terrorist organisations.

The incident has sent shockwaves through Brussels and Sweden, with both countries expressing their condolences to those affected by the attack. The Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven said that his country would do everything it could to support those affected by this "horrific act". He also called on people to remain vigilant against terrorism but stressed that Sweden would not be intimidated by such acts of violence.

In Hong Kong, police have increased security around tourist spots following news of the shooting in Brussels. They have urged people to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activity they may witness or hear about. They also warned people not to spread rumours or false information about terrorist attacks as this could cause unnecessary panic among citizens.



目前仍不明朗此行動的動機,但是布魯塞爾當局表明似乎是一起「恐怖主義」行動。傳出說法是:在開始開槍之前,他大聲宣告「真主最大」(Allahu Akbar) ;這引出了他可能受到伊斯蘭原教旨主義影響的說法。然而目前尚無任何團體宣布對此行動負責;也不明朗他與否與任何「恐怖主義」團體有關係。

此事件引來布魯塞爾及瑞典的衝擊波;雙方都向受影響者表達了哀愁之情。 瑞典首相斯特凡·勒夫文 (Stefan Löfven) 表明:「我國將竭力協助受影響者度過這「可怕的行動」 。」 他也呼吁民眾要保持警惕、迅速回覆「 恐怖主義」行動 ; 同時強調 : 瑞典不會因此而感到害怕。

香港警方於布魯塞爾出事得到徹底之後 ; 增加了旅遊區的安全度 ; 又告誡民眾要保���警惕、如有異狀立即上報 ; 又說明不要散佈誤傳或不實情況、弄巧成章而引來無用之緊張氣氛。
