Belgium reduced its national threat level on Monday, saying a terror attack had become less likely almost two years after Muslim terrorists murdered 32 people in Brussels.

The government reduced the threat level to two on a four-tier scale, indicating a medium risk. Authorities had been on alert at level three for the serious chance of a terror attack since the bombings on March 22, 2016.

Local police were not immediately available for comment on the incident in Ghent.
