Early Saturday morning, the Belgian news agency Belga, citing the Interior Ministry, said officials had raised the terror threat level to the highest possible.

“Following our latest evaluation… the center has raised its terror alert to level 4, signifying a very serious threat, for the Brussels region,” the Belgian Interior Ministry said in a statement.
