Imminent Release of Anti-Islam Film Causes Terrorism Alert Level to be Raised in Belgium
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
The Minister of the Interior has increased the terrorist alert level to 3, which indicates the existence of a serious threat. The reason is the release of a new anti-islam film, the Het Laatste Nieuws and De Morgen report on Friday.
"The Innocent Prophet" is due to be released in a week. In this film, Imran Firasat, a Pakistani resident in Spain, draws an unflattering portrait of the prophet Mohammed.
The Organe de Coordination pour l'Analyse de la Menace (OCAM) [Threat Analysis Coordination Body] decided to take no risk and has raised the terrorist alert level from 2 to 3, on a scale of 4.
