Palace: Enough security measures are in place to thwart terror attacks in the country

Malacañang has assured that sufficient security measures are being implemented in the country, especially following the bomb attacks in Belgium that left 34 people dead.

Communication Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said the government is strict in securing public places in the country.

These security measures in airports and terminals, he said, include the inspection of people and vehicles, and X-ray scans of baggage, hand-carried items and cargoes.

The Palace official further quoted Philippine Ambassador to Belgium Victoria Bataclan as saying that no Filipino has been killed or injured during the terror attacks.

Coloma also advised Filipinos in Belgium to remain vigilant and heed the call of Belgian authorities if they have announcements.

According to news reports, two explosions were heard at the Brussels airport and another at a busy train station in the Belgian capital on Tuesday, killing some 34 people and injuring about 250.

The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the coordinated bombing but Belgian authorities are still determining whether the terror group is behind the attacks. (PCOO News Release)
