Belgium holds 5 over 'New Year plot', cancels Brussels fireworks

Both Brussels and Paris cancelled annual New Year’s Eve fireworks displays as soldiers and police ramped up security in European capitals over perceived terror threats. There were instead plenty of private fireworks displays throughout the Belgian capital at midnight, accompanied by cheers and loud music, but the celebrations were vastly diminished compared to last year’s.
