Belgian police have cordoned off a large portion of the downtown area
An earlier security threat on a main shopping thoroughfare in Brussels has come to an end.
The City2 Mall was evacuated and the Rogier metro closed as Police dealt with a bomb threat.
It is now believed to have been a hoax.
It comes as the airport opens it's door for the first time since two blasts killed 32 people 12 days ago.
A minute's silence was held and three flights will take off throughout the course of the evening.
