Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has ordered temporarily a heightened terrorism alert in Hungary at the second highest level following the blasts in Brussels, Hungarian Interior Minister Sandor Pinter said in Budapest on Tuesday.

The measures include dispatching patrolling officers and armored vehicles to Liszt Ferenc International Airport, Pinter said, adding that members of Hungary’s TEK counter-terrorism force have been dispatched to patrol the square in front of Parliament, as well as metro stations in Budapest.

The second-highest level alert will remain in effect until it is clarified what happened exactly in Brussels, and what can be expected in other European countries, Pinter said. Enditem
