A man suspected of killing two Swedish nationals in Brussels as shot dead by police this morning, 12 hours after a manhunt was launched.

Brussels is on its highest terror alert, meaning that a ‘threat is extremely serious’.

Officers finally apprehended the man in a café in the Schaerbeek neighbourhood earlier this morning.

He was rushed to hospital in an ambulance where he was in intensive care for at least an hour before it was confirmed that he died.

Prosecuting source Eric Van Duyse said: ‘Police opened fire after the suspect was spotted inside at around 8am on Tuesday.’

Meanwhile, Belgium’s interior minister Annelies Verlinden told VRT radio that ‘we have the good news that we found the individual’.
