A Reuters correspondent at the scene a little over an hour after the incident – in which the man detonated a small explosion – said the area was quiet, with police manning a cordon and a few bystanders calmly watching security forces at work.

Local media quoted officials offering somewhat differing accounts of what happened. A police spokesman said it was still unclear if the suspect had died, after other officials had described him as having been killed. A public prosecutor, quoted by DH newspaper, said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist incident in a city that has been on high alert since a Brussels-based Islamic State cell launched an attack that killed 130 people in Paris in November 2015 and four months later killed 32 people in their home city.

“An individual carrying a rucksack and an explosive belt in Central Station has been shot dead,” DH quoted the prosecutor as saying. “He seems to have set off his device when the soldiers started paying attention to him.”
