The Belgian capital remains on alert with authorities warning that a terror strike is “possible and probable”. Belgium has lowered the security threat level in Brussels after nearly a week on maximum alert in the wake of the Paris terror attacks.
The country’s Threat Analysis Coordination Agency reduced the threat level from four to three, a spokesman for the crisis centre said.
A level three alert – which brings Brussels in line with the rest of Belgium – means there is a “serious, possible and probable” threat of a terror strike.
Belgium raised its terror alert to level three immediately after the 13 November attacks in Paris, which killed 130 people.
A week later the capital was put on maximum alert as police searched for a Belgian suspect, as well as accomplices who were suspected of planning similar attacks in Brussels.
