Metro and schools reopen in Brussels

Army and police on streets as metro reopens.

MANY Metro stations and schools have been reopened in Brussels on Wednesday, four days after the city went on lockdown following a security alert linked to suspects in the Paris attacks.

The highest level of alert hasn’t been lifted in the city and soldiers and armed police are still patrolling the streets.

Brussels is expected to stay on the highest level of alert until Monday at the earliest, as schools and metro stations reopen today.

Authorities have said that they are searching for around 10 suspects as similar attacks to those carried out in Paris are thought to have been planned for Brussels.

Belgium issued an arrest warrant for Mohamed Abrini on Tuesday, after prosecutors say he was seen in a Renault Clio with Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam which was used in the attacks.

The President of France, Francois Hollande, met American President Barack Obama on Tuesday and the leaders confirmed greater cooperation between the countries to target ISIS bases in Syria and Iraq.
