Brussels On High Alert As Police Hunt Attacker

Belgium announced terrorism charges Monday against a fourth suspect related to the Paris attacks after launching new raids in the capital and beyond in their hunt for a fugitive suspect in the Paris carnage.

Brussels entered a work week and was grappling with a third day of unprecedented security measures that have closed subways, shopping districts and now schools. The Belgian government kept the capital on the highest state of alert in the face of what it described as a “serious and imminent”.

The hit state of alert is set to remain in place until next Monday. Meanwhile, in Paris, British Prime Minister Cameron said he will ask for parliamentary approval for the U.K. to join airstrikes against Islamic State extremists in Syria.
