Namur Prosecutor Vincent Mac cautiously suggested the alleged attack on a Belgian military barracks carried out by a man using his car is unlikely to be linked to terrorism, during a press conference in the city, Monday.

During the incident, which happened in the village of Flawinne near Namur, the man rammed a car into the barracks' main entrance gates before fleeing when soldiers fired 12 shots at the vehicle. The alleged attacker was later detained by Belgian police at around noon (11 GMT).

"What we can say is that he had no weapons, he had no explosive in the car, because that was a question at the beginning. So it did not seem, but I want to be very careful, it didn't seem to be a terrorist attack," Mac told reporters.
