Brussels shops closed after city placed on maximum security alert

Sharing is Caring

Brussels, Nov 22 (ANI): Shops in the centre of Belgian capital Brussels closed at midday, three weeks before Christmas and commercial streets filled up with police and soldiers after the threat level was raised to the maximum implying a “serious and imminent threat.” Belgian Prime Minister had announced the new measures saying police had recovered weapons and explosives during a house search the night before. The level 4 threat alert was imposed one week after the Paris bombings and shootings carried out by Islamic State militants, of whom one suspect from Brussels is at large and said by police to be highly dangerous.
