‘Imminent threat of attack’: Brussels closes metro as capital on high alert #HNNTerror


The Belgian capital, Brussels, is facing a “serious and imminent” threat of a terrorist attack, with a government official warning the public to avoid crowds, while the metro has been closed. Brussels has raised its alert status to the highest possible level.

Brussels security forces are looking for at least two men, one of who might be carrying a bomb of the same type used in Paris attacks on November 13, Belgian Le Soir reported.

"The advice for the population is to avoid places where a lot of people come together, like shopping centers, concerts, events or public transport stations wherever possible," a spokesman for the government's crisis center said, Reuters reported.

The recommendation came after the government increased its threat scale to “level four” following a meeting of ministers, police and the security services.
