Terror threat remains at level 3

Published on 10/02/2015

The body is keen to stress that the security services do not possess any tangible information about a specific terrorist threat in Belgium.

The decision to maintain the terrorist threat level at level 3 at least for a further two weeks means that a raft of measures remain in force.

Under level 3 the military can be deployed to guard sensitive sites.

Security measures are continuously being evaluated and adjustments are being made where necessary.

The threat level was raised to level 3 following the killing by police of two terrorist suspects in Verviers last month.

Level 3 means that there is a serious terrorist threat. Persons, groups or events are possibly but also probably the target of a terrorist outrage.
