Belgium to maintain security threat level for Trump visit

AP  |  Brussels 

Belgian authorities say they have carried out security threat assessments ahead of President Donald Trump's visit to Brussels next week but see no need to increase the national threat-alert level.

Belgium has remained on Level 3 - meaning that an attack "is possible and likely" - since the deadly suicide- bomb attacks on the Brussels airport and subway on March 22 last year.

Belgium's Crisis Center said today that "Level 4 is not determined in any of these assessments at this time," and that it has "no information indicating that a terrorist attack might be planned."

Top of the scale Level 4 indicates a threat of imminent of attack.

Rallies have been organized in protest against the May 25 meeting, part of Trump's first European tour.
