Brussels on maximum terror alert
Government officials put Brussels on the maximum level of alert for a terrorist attack Saturday, saying there was a 'serious and imminent' threat. Public transportation, sporting events, concerts, and shopping centers closed down, and soldiers stood guard in the streets Saturday. Prime Minister Charles Michel said the decision was 'based on quite precise information about the risk of an attack like the one that happened in Paris.' On Nov. 13, the Islamic State carried out a series of terrorist attacks in France, killing at least 130 people. [The Washington Post, The Guardian]
U.N. unanimously resolves to fight ISIS
The United Nations Security Council unanimously passed a resolution Friday urging countries to take 'all necessary measures' to fight the Islamic State following Nov. 13's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

The U.N. agreement did not authorize the use of force, but called for the removal of the terrorist group's 'safe havens' in Syria and Iraq. [The New York Times, BBC News]
Trump, Carson under fire for Muslim database comments
Republican presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Ben Carson each tried to adjust their suggestions Friday that the U.S. should have a database to track people as a precaution against attacks from the Islamic State and other extremist groups. Trump said he meant to track Syrian refugees only, not all Muslims. Meanwhile, Carson said a database should be used for 'everybody' in the country and looking to enter, not just Muslims. Both party outsiders are taking a harder stance than their competitors in the refugee screening debate. [CBS News, The Star-Ledger]
