Counterterror operation underway in central Brussels, reports say
Belgian security forces launched an operation in the center of Brussels on Sunday evening to counter a possible terrorist threat, reports said. Several blocks were completely sealed off, and residents were told to remain in their homes and stay away from the windows. People in certain restaurants and hotels were told to stay inside until further notice, and in one hotel the guests were reportedly instructed not to leave their rooms. Part of the area was reopened later in the evening as the operation continued.
