Belgium terror fears: Boy, 14, found with rucksack full of bombs marked 'Allah Akbar'
They swarmed onto a construction site near Molenbeek train station, Belgium, after they saw plumes of smoke rising from one of the skeleton buildings.
Four teenagers were discovered inside, one of whom was allegedly carrying a deadly cargo of homemade bombs in his back pack.
The 14-year-old was also in possession of a bottle with the words “Allah Akbar” engraved into it, according to police.
Armed police searched the child’s home and found more bomb-making equipment.
The teenager’s computer was confiscated and he was found to have searched online for “how to make a bomb”, Belgian police claim.
He allegedly told police that he wanted to make a bomb because he is interested in video games and chemistry.
Police have detained the child, who has no previous criminal convictions, as he awaits trial.
