US Embassy in Brussels: American citizens in Belgium should stay indoors

The US Embassy in Belgium issued a security message on Saturday, urging American citizens in the country to seek shelter and remain indoors as Brussels was on the highest level of alert due to a "serious and imminent" threat of attack.
The mission also advised US citizens to avoid large crowds if outdoor travel was necessary.
"In this time of elevated threat, the US Embassy in Brussels reminds US citizens to exercise caution in public transportation systems, sporting events, residential areas, business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, schools, public areas, shopping malls, and other tourist destinations," read the update on the embassy's website.
