Police detain eight people during investigations into an alleged plot to commit “terrorist attacks” in Belgium, the federal prosecutor’s office says.

Raids were conducted late last night on homes in the capital Brussels, the port city of Antwerp and the border town of Eupen, the statement says.

A judicial source tells AFP those arrested “were very young radicalized people” suspected of belonging to a jihadist movement.

The statement says at least five of those detained were suspected of planning to “commit a terrorist attack in Belgium.”
