Updated | A spokeswoman for the Brussels’ prosecutor has said that a large fire at the country’s Institute of Criminology was likely started to destroy evidence.

Ine Van Wymersch said that earlier reports of an explosion preceding the fire were probably false. “It’s a criminal act,” Van Wymersch told Associated Press. “I cannot confirm that there was any bomb.” Five people have been arrested.
