Belgium maintains second-highest alert level after deadly raid

Belgium is not changing its terror alert level following an anti-terrorist raid in which a suspect was killed, Prime Minister Charles Michel announces, according to the Belga news agency.

The country will stay at Level 3, the second-highest position, which indicates a "possible and likely menace," Michel says following a meeting of the country's coordinating unit for threat analysis, OCAM.

This means that police and military forces will remain present in the streets, the premier says. "Our intention is to remain fully mobilized," he adds.
