Reuters , Monday 22 Jan 2018

Belgium reduced its national threat level on Monday, saying a militant attack had become less likely almost two years after bombings killed 32 people in Brussels.

The prime minister said the country had reduced the threat level to two on a four-tier scale, indicating an average risk.

"But level 2 after the attacks is not the same as level 2 was before the attacks," Prime Minister Charles Michel told a news conference.
