EVACUATED: European Parliament Area Shut Down As ‘Suspect Red Van’ Found

An area around the European Parliament in Brussels has been shut down following yet another security scare in a European capital. 

Reports are emerging on Twitter that the Rue du Parnasse near the Place du Luxembourg has been evacuated and cordoned off this morning, with armed police responding to a suspicious “red van”.

Breitbart London has confirmed this with the hotel, though they say they are “not able to give any additional information” and that the hotel is still not open to members of the public.

The hotel served as a venue for the recent POLITICO Playbook Breakfast featuring UKIP leader Nigel Farage.

The news comes a day after more raids took place in the Brussels ‘no go zone’ of Molenbeek – the home to the mastermind of the Paris Attacks last week.

The incident, now believed to have been resolved, was thought to have been sparked by a report by the U.S. embassy.
