BRUSSELS Police reopened the main railway station in Belgium's port city of Antwerp on Friday after the building and surrounding streets were cleared due to a bomb threat, the force said.
The shutdown caused severe delays on the high-speed rail link between Paris and Amsterdam, operator Thalys said on its website. It also affected local train services.
An anonymous caller phoned police in the neighbouring Netherlands to say a bomb would go off in Antwerp Central Station, then hung up, a spokeswoman for the city's police force told Reuters.
A sweep of the premises with sniffer dogs revealed no suspicious packages or people. Police were investigating who made the phone call.
