Three people were arrested in Belgium on Monday after men burst into an apartment building and took a hostage in the western city of Ghent, authorities said.
The siege began early Monday and several hours later armed police entered the apartment, BBC reports. Federal police established a careful security cordon to keep bystanders away and three suspects gave themselves up without violence. The hostage was reportedly released unharmed.
“This isn’t the same sort of incident as the events in Sydney,” said federal police spokeswoman Annemie Serlippens.
It was unclear whether the police were still searching for more suspects.
