Post Explosives at Brussels airport?

Belgian tv is reporting Brussels airport has been evacuated because of a possible bomb threat.

A man supposedly walked up to a ticket counter to buy a ticket, saying he had explosives in his bag. <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

VRT television reports that the man didn't have any explosives. He demanded a free ticket.

I hope they lock him up for years for this incident

Apparently, some bozo walked up to the Finnair counter and demanded a free ticket. When this was not forthcoming, he said that he had explosives.

He's now being given a free holiday, courtesy of the Belgian government.

I hope the same happens to those "media personnel" who carry knives etc onto the aircraft - or are they exempt - or perhaps its not against the law?
