Brussels ‘march against fear’ cancelled due to fear of terrorist attack

A planned solidarity march to be held through the street of Brussels to show solidarity for terror victims has been cancelled due to security concerns.


After a public plea from Jan Jambon, Belgium’s Interior minister, organisers of the march cancelled rally so ongoing security investigations could be completed.

Mr. Jambon said: “We are still all over the country in threat level three and there are enquiries, important enquiries, going on. For these enquiries we need a lot of police capacity all over the country and it’s our main priority to let the police in the best circumstances possible do these enquiries – that’s the reason why we invite the citizens tomorrow not to demonstrate.”

There are still fears that ISIS militants could plotting more attacks and hiding among the refugee population that have flooded into Europe.
