Brussels placed on highest terror alert

Belgian officials placed Brussels on the country's highest terror alert Saturday, shutting down all subway lines and deploying heavily armed troops on the streets because of a "serious and imminent threat."

The Level 4 terror alert, issued by the Crisis Centre of the Belgian Interior Ministry, warned people to avoid places where large groups gather, such as concerts, sporting events, airports and train stations, and to be prepared to undergo security checks.
