Today is Christmas Day, many countries around the world are celebrating the holiday with their loved ones. However, due to the truck attack incident at a Berlin Christmas market, major cities in Europe and the U.S. have taken high alert and tightened their security measures. According to American FBI reports, the Islamic State supporters plan to make attacks during the holiday season. Many famous Christmas markets in Brussels are fully decorated with holiday spirits. However, security forces made the holiday atmosphere otherwise. ==MARINA BRESCIANI Belgium Christmas Market Organizer== We are careful and we talk every hour with the police and we are in contact with them, then we set up some security measures. ==NAOMI VERACKE, Christmas market visitor== We're all a bit afraid of the attacks sometimes because it could happen anywhere at any time. But I mean we came here, there is police, military guys everywhere. Major cities in the Europe and the U.S. have taken anti-terrorists measures. After a truck attack on a Berlin Christmas market, German police had arrested two suspects at one other famous shopping center. ==ULRICH FASSBENDER, Essen Police Spokesperson== Essen police got a tip-off from security sources yesterday around 6pm that an attack was planned on the shopping mall in Oberhausen or the Christmas market next to it. We then increased our forces on the ground and we started investigating two suspects. Airports in the U.S. are filled with home returning passengers. According to the intelligence reports, the Islamic State supporters plan to attack churches and markets. The U.S. government urges citizens to be vigilant. French government also raised security alert to the highest level to prevent possible attacks in the holiday season.
