PARIS — French officials have announced that construction of an eight-foot high bulletproof glass wall around the Eiffel Tower will begin in September, after revelations that the most recent jihadist attacker may have been targeting the iconic Parisian monument.

As Breitbart News reported earlier this year, authorities decided to erect the protective wall to shield the tower from terrorist threats. Bernard Gaudillères, president of the organisation that operates the Tower, said that the bulletproof wall would “encompass most of the gardens of the Eiffel Tower.”

Belgian soldiers patrolling a major train station in Brussels have killed a suspected suicide bomber following an explosion.

He ran at soldiers while on fire after the blast, shouting “Allahu akbar” – God is greatest – in Arabic, before he was shot dead by troops.

Belgium’s federal prosecutor confirmed the “terrorist attack” at Brussels Central, one of the country’s busiest stations.

Authorities have identified the suspect as a Moroccan national, but have not released his name.

He lived in Molenbeek – the district which was home to some of the people suspected of carrying out the terror attacks in Paris and Brussels in 2015 and 2016.

Police have been searching his home in the Brussels neighbourhood. Prosecutors said he had no history of being a terror suspect.
