Croatian police step up security after Brussels attacks

Croatian police have stepped up security measures following the latest terrorist attacks in Brussels, and control has particularly been stepped up at airports and border crossings, sources at the Police Directorate confirmed.

Security measures were raised to the highest possible level following the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015.

Several European countries on Tuesday stepped up security and border control after the latest terrorist attacks in Brussels, calling also for a stronger fight against terrorism, news agencies reported.

France, Germany, the Netherlands and Great Britain said they would introduce additional security measures only a few hours after separate attacks at Brussels airport and subway which, according to the latest reports, claimed the lives of 34 people and injured around 170.
