No reason to panic

On Monday morning, an unknown person launched a Snapchat message about an armed man willing to strike.

The message does not mention the University of Antwerp, but it was sent to the university's helpdesk on behalf of an alleged medical student.

The university immediately informed the police. According to the police, this is not an acute threat.

The case will be investigated further as a matter of priority, but all lessons and other activities at the university will continue to take place.

There is no reason to panic at the moment.

The police are present at Campus Drie Eiken, with the main aim of reassuring everyone.
