A Belgian federal prosecutor said Belgian security forces found a rifle and bladed weapons in a car driven by a Frenchman who tried to ram a crowd on Thursday in the port city of Antwerp.

The federal prosecutor's office said several weapons were found in the boot, including bladed weapons, a rifle, and a container of liquid that is still unidentified. The suspect is Mohamed R, 40, of French nationality.

He drove a car at speed into a pedestrian street in Antwerp on Thursday, forcing people to jump out of his path. The police managed to stop the car and arrested him.
