Denis Goeman of the Brussels Judicial Authorities told journalists that “the screen is outside a building belonging to the European Parliament on the Wiertzstraat in Brussels.  Visitors to the parliament can leave a message. Yesterday someone posted ‘Bruselas will be attacked tomorrow at 6:00pm in Grand Place by a guy with a neon shirt – Abulah Hakimi'”.  

CCTV images are being examined in order to identify the person that left the message.
