Belgium has raised its attack alert in the capital to the highest level, following the attacks on Paris on Friday the 13th.

The government has warned the people to avoid crowded and public areas because of a “serious and imminent” threat. The move was made in Brussels after a meeting of top ministers, police and security services.

Prime Minister Charles Michel stated that the alert was “based on quite precise information” about a planned attack.

Some of the attackers who killed 130 people in Paris lived in Brussels and leading suspect Salah Abdeslam is believed to have gone back to Belgium. A massive manhunt is underway to capture the remaining suspects in connection to the attack  on the night of Friday the 13th.
