‘The court considers that there is insufficient evidence of violations of the legislation on terrorism,’ the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

‘The extension of the detention of the person concerned is only based on violations of the arms legislation,’ it added.

The man was arrested March 23 for driving at high speed into the crowded Meir shopping area in Antwerp, forcing people to jump out of the way but causing no injuries.

The authorities said they found a rifle and bladed weapons in the car following his arrest.

The incident came a day after a similar attack in London that killed five people plus the attacker. It also came a day after the first anniversary of the Brussels suicide bombings in which 32 people died.

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
