Brussels attacks rally should be postponed for security reasons: minister

People gather at a makeshift memorial in tribute to the victims of the Brussels terror attacks, on Place de la Bourse square in Brussels, on March 25, 2016Belgian authorities asked people not to join a “March against Fear” Sunday after the deadly Brussels airport and metro attacks because of security concerns, suggesting the rally should be delayed by several weeks. “We invite the citizens tomorrow to not have this manifestation,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon said in English Saturday, citing security fears as Belgium remains on high alert after Tuesday’s attacks which left 31 dead and 300 wounded. Organisers said Sunday’s march was meant to show that Brussels and the country at large refused to be intimidated by terrorism and that everyone stood together.
