The coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13 hit the Stade de France in Saint-Denis as well as restaurants, caf├ęs and a concert hall.

Separate from the attacks last month in Paris, authorities have canceled New Year’s festivities in Brussels, including fireworks, due to a heightened terror alert, Mayor Yvan Mayeur said in an interview with CNN affiliate RTL.

The cancellation comes after authorities arrested two people on suspicion of being involved in a plot to attack “emblematic sites” in Belgium’s capital during New Year’s celebrations — including the iconic Grand Place in Brussels, which is frequently packed with tourists and locals alike.
