"We can confirm that the Threat Analysis Coordination Agency re-evaluated the threat level from four to level three," a spokesman for the crisis centre, which is part of the interior ministry said.
    
There were no immediate details on what basis the agency reduced the threat level, with the national security council of top government officials set to decide on the consequences at a meeting later yesterday.
    
The alert level was raised early Saturday after the government warned of a 'serious and imminent threat' of attacks in the capital similar to the Paris atrocities that left 130 people dead on November 13.
    
The city was locked down with armed police and troops patrolling near deserted streets and the metro system completely shut down, while schools stayed shut on Monday and Tuesday.
    
Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel had said on Monday the threat level would remain at its highest until November 30 but that it would be reviewed constantly.
