The Spokesman for the Grens Local Police Service told the VRT that an investigation has been launched in the first place to ascertain whether real explosives were used or just large fireworks.
"In any case the payment terminal was damaged, but not to the extent that the perpetrators were able to take anything.”
The thieves fled the scene after the explosion. There is currently still no sign of any of them.
The police have launched an investigation. The incident is reported to have been filmed by CCTV cameras that are installed at the petrol station.
