Paris attacks rattle nerves throughout Europe, in pictures (20pics)

Belgian soldiers and a police officer control the documents of a woman in a shopping street in central Brussels after security was tightened in Belgium following the fatal attacks in Paris. Belgium's capital was on terror lockdown on Saturday, with a gunman still on the run after the Paris attacks which have rattled nerves throughout Europe.
 The Belgian capital closed its metro system, above, and shuttered shopping centres as a terror alert was raised to its highest level over reports of an "imminent threat" of a gun and bomb attack similar to the horror seen in Paris last week.
The carnage in Paris has put all of Europe on edge as it emerged dangerous jihadists slipped between countries unnoticed, with France extending a ban on public gatherings until November 30, the start of a UN climate summit.
