Paris attacks: Brussels alert stays at highest level
November 22, 2015, 10:00 pm

Brussels will stay on the highest level of terror alert, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel says, amid a manhunt for suspects linked to the Paris attacks. Schools, universities and the metro in the Belgian capital will remain closed on Monday, Mr. Michel said. Brussels has been on lockdown all weekend, as police search for suspected Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam.

Islamic State militants, some of whom were from Brussels, killed 130 people in Paris on 13 November. Earlier, Belgian Interior Minister Jan Jambon said the danger to Belgium was not tied to Abdeslam alone. "The threat is broader than the one suspected terrorist," he told Flemish broadcaster VRT. Soldiers joined police officers on patrols in Brussels over the weekend. Many public spaces in the usually bustling capital were deserted, as people heeded official warnings to avoid crowds.
