Police did not discover any guns or explosives in the raids, and Brussels remained in lockdown, with the maximum terror alert for the city. Prime Minister of Belgium Charles Michel said any possible attacks could involve "several individuals striking simultaneously in several places."

In response to the possibility of an attack, the Brussels Metro remained closed yesterday, schools and universities were also closed and police and soldiers patrolled the streets of Belgium's capital city. The search also continued for Salah Abdeslam in Belgium. During a television interview, Abdeslam's brother, Mohammed Abdeslam, encouraged Salah to surrender to the police.

Authorities planned to review of security yesterday to assess the level of security required in Brussels. Prime Minister Michel said he wants Brussels to return to normal: "we are doing everything we can to return to normality as soon as possible".
