Officials review maximum alert status for Brussels

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION)

Belgian security officials were set to review on Sunday whether to keep Brussels on maximum alert, leaving the public to wonder whether the blanket metro closure and cancellation of events could continue into the working week.

Prime Minister Charles Michel has advised the public to be alert rather than panic-stricken, but also said the raised security level on Saturday was due to the “serious and imminent” threat of Paris-style coordinated attacks.

Belgium’s crisis center, a body that advises the government on security measures, said on Sunday the alert status for Brussels remained at four, the highest level, and with the rest of the country on three, meaning a possible and probable threat.
