Belgium to maintain high security alert for another week

<p>Belgian police have charged a fourth man over the deadly attacks on Paris. The terrorism suspect was one of 16 people detained on Sunday. The rest have all been released without charge.</p> <p>Prime Minister Charles Michel says the country will also be maintaining its highest security level for at least another week. </p> <p>“We’d like to make every effort to progressively regain a normal life, while staying vigilant. It means that we decided that schools would reopen on Wednesday while complementary security measures will be put in place around the schools; and the metro will also reopen on Wednesday,” he said.</p> <p>Universities, schools, shopping centres and the metro system were all closed on Monday, for a third day, as security forces patrolled an eerily quiet Brussels. </p> <p>Unsurprisingly, many people are alarmed and scared by the state of emergency.</p> <p>“I’m feeling a bit under tense, yes, but on the other hand I also feel secure. There is sufficient police and army around so that’s fine,” said one man in Brussels.</p> <p>As the city tries to deal with the threat of a terrorist strike, authorities have urged people to remain calm but vigilant.</p>
