More ISIS 'combatants' sent to Europe – Belgium

Risk of new terror attack 'possible', 'plausible'

(ANSA) - Brussels, April 19 - Belgium's Coordination Unit for Threat Analysis (OCAM) said Tuesday it has received information suggesting that ISIS has sent other 'combatants' to Europe. The unit consequently decided to maintain the terror alert level in Belgium at 3 on a scale of 4.
    This means the risk of fresh attacks is still considered 'possible' and 'plausible' a month after multiple attacks in Brussels left 32 dead and hundreds injured. Meanwhile, OCAM director-general Alain Lefevre said security would be beefed up at airports and railway stations, on public transport and at nuclear power stations.
