2 BROTHERS ARRESTED IN BELGIUM TO THWART TERROR
Police arrested two men suspected of planning an attack in Belgium after house searches on Friday evening, federal prosecutors said on Saturday 07/30/2016.
The two, named as 33-year-old Nourredine H. and his brother Hamza H., will appear before a judge on Saturday to determine whether they should be held in custody beyond an initial 24 hours.
“Based on provisional results from the investigation, it appears that there were plans to carry out an attack somewhere in Belgium,” the federal prosecution office said in a statement.
Police carried out seven house searches in the region of Mons and a further house search in Liege. No weapons or explosives were found.
** Probably related to the arrests the Dutch police conducted security searches around Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport on Saturday in response to indications of a threat, an official said, causing traffic jams during the busy summer holiday season, Reuters reported.
