Prime Minister Charles Michel says the nation will remain "extremely vigilant, hour by hour," but says the terror level across the nation will remain at the second-highest level, meaning an threat of an attack "is possible and likely."
Belgium's federal prosecutor has said the man behind a bombing at Brussels Central Station may have supported the so-called "Islamic State." Investigators also found materials used to make explosives in the man's home.
Police say the suspect tried to enter a busy shopping street in a car traveling at high speed. Extra security and military personnel have been deployed to the northern Belgian port city.
Three men detained after raids in Brussels have been released without charges. Four raids took place, but no arms or explosives were found, according to a spokeswoman for the Brussels prosecutor's office.
Memorials, a moment of silence, and a "minute of noise" have been held to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the Brussels terror attacks. The triple bomb blasts killed 32 people and wounded more than 300 others.
