Seven raids took place around Brussels on Thursday morning. One, in Laeken, is part of the investigation into last Friday’s Paris attacks.
The other raids in Brussels, Jette, Uccle and Molenbeek-Saint-Jean took place at the homes of family members and friends of Bilal Hafdi, one of the suicide bombers who blew himself up near the Stade de France. However there was no link between the raids and the investigation into the attacks, according to the federal prosecutor’s office on Thursday.
