Heightened New Year’s security amid threats of terrorism

Dec 31, 2013

The federal prosecutors office has launched a full investigation and Belgian police will be stepping up their presence around the country tonight amid various terrorism threats recently made on social media sites.

The threats have suggested Antwerp's Central Station and Brussels famous monument the Atomium as potential targets on New Year’s Eve. Police will also be keeping a watchful eye on other possible targets, such as the quays of Antwerp and it’s main shopping area, the Meir.

The latest threats of terrorism, which surfaced following the recent attacks in Russia that left two-dozen people dead, have led Belgian and French authorities to take action.

The threats were posted on a Facebook account created by a supposed Muslim extremist member belonging to the group Sharia4Belgium. The individual is believed to have died in Syria.
