Brussels bomb threat: Police comb streets with sniffer dogs after anonymous warning
Police are combing the area near the European Union's headquarters in Brussels after an anonymous bomb threat was allegedly made by telephone.
The European Commission (EC) said the threat was made to a company linked to the EU and "had been taken seriously".
Some 40 people have been evacuated and police with sniffer dogs are visible in the area around Rue Breydel.
Margaritis Schinas, a spokesman for EC, told the daily press briefing said its staff were using alternative entrances as a result of the incident.
