    Belgium will enforce stricter police control at major events such as concerts after the Paris terrorist attacks, Benoit Ramacker, spokesperson of the crisis center of the ministry of interior of Belgium, told Sputnik.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – One of the Friday Paris attacks took place at the Bataclan music venue where a rock concert was underway. Hostages were taken at the concert hall and at least 100 people died before police managed to neutralize the terrorists.

    "We made some recommendations not for people traveling in the direction of France, but we made recommendations for the big events in Belgium, like concerts or shows or so, for specific big events, there will be more police control during these big events," Ramacker said.

    Belgium introduced special security measures at the border with France following the Friday terrorist attacks.

    "We are only taking measures to the border, just to reinforce the control. That's all," Ramacker told Sputnik.
