trap has been found in the abandoned car of fugitive military Jurgen Conings in the nature reserve Heuvelsven in Dilsen-Stokkem. That‘s what the federal prosecutor’s office of Belgium reports.
According to the Belgian Explosives Service, it is a “suspicious construction around a trip flare”, and ammunition was found in the vehicle, just like four rocket launchers. The explosives squad was able to dismantle the structure.
The Explosives Service writes in a report that “the possible consequences of going off the trip flare in combination with the ammunition found and the other material are very difficult or even impossible to estimate”, but that “the risk of a violent fire with additional explosions than is not excluded.”
