A suspected anthrax scare has forced the sudden evacuation of Brussels Grand mosque as chemical teams were called to the religious building.

‘Suspicious white powder’ was found in envelopes at the mosque, according to local media. At least 11 people have been sent to decontamination units to undergo testing for the deadly disease.

Firecrews and decontamination teams attended a major mosque in Brussels close to the European Union headquarters.

Witnesses saw about a dozen emergency vehicles, including police, outside the Islamic and Cultural Centre of Belgium, a large Saudi-established institution including a mosque situated 200 metres (yards) from the European Commission.

A spokeswoman for the fire service said it had taken a call from the mosque from a person saying they believed that they had found anthrax powder.

The terrifying discovery prompted the deployment of specialist crews. However there has been no immediate word on what the substance was.
