France and Belgium warned citizens they risk further terrorist atrocities even after a four-month manhunt ended in the dramatic capture of suspected Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam.

“We are totally convinced that the fight is not over, the fight for security, the fight against the various forms of extremism, the fight against terrorism,” Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said on Saturday, a day after special forces dragged Abdeslam out of a house in the Molenbeek district of Brussels. The nation kept its terror threat unchanged at Level 3, the second-highest grade.
