Belgium sends extra troops to guard Jewish quarter of Antwerp

Soldiers have fanned out to guard possible terror targets across Belgium, including some buildings in the Jewish quarter of the port city of Antwerp.

It is the first time in 30 years that authorities have used troops to reinforce police in Belgium’s cities, a day after anti-terror raids netted dozens of suspects across western Europe.

Belgium has increased its terror warning to level three, the second highest, following the anti-terror raids on Thursday which left two suspects dead.
