Brussels latest

Brussels is to remain on high alert, in the face an imminent threat, following a weekend lockdown.

Brussels schools and universities, as well as the city's metro system are expected to stay shut for the next few days.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel spoke at a press conference earlier today, warning of the possibility of a Paris-style attack on the Belgian capital.

Authorities say there is a risk that multiple attacks may be attempted in different locations across the city.

This comes amid a manhunt for suspected Paris attack conspirator and Belgian national, Salah Abdelslam. Abdelslam remains at large, whereabouts still unknown at present.

Belgian security services strongly urge the Belgian public to refrain from publicising any operations they are currently carrying out, as it will risk jeapordizing their efforts.

Over a week after an attack in Paris, which left 130 people dead, another European city is holding its breath.
