Three people have been killed and one seriously injured during a shooting at the Jewish Museum in central Brussels.

Belgium’s interior minister said anti-Semitic motives could be behind the attack.

A spokesman for the Brussels firebrigade said the shooter drove up to the museum, went inside and fired shots.

“According to the information we have at the moment, it was a solitary shooter and it seems to have happened inside the museum,” Pierre Meys, Brussels firebrigade spokesman, told French channel BFM TV.

“There were a lot of witnesses and the investigation is moving fast.”

Police cordoned off the area, a busy tourist district in central Brussels packed with cafes and restaurants.
