Belgium extends top threat alert for Brussels to Monday
By Philip Blenkinsop BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgium said it faced a serious and imminent threat of a Paris-style attack, and kept Brussels on maximum alert on Monday as security forces searched for militants thought to be at large in the capital. Prime Minister Charles Michel, speaking after a meeting of security chiefs called to review the threat status, said the capital's metro, universities and schools would be closed on Monday. For the rest of the country, a threat level of three on a four-tier scale would remain in place, Michel said.
