Eight raids took place in the Brussels region on Thursday morning, revealed the federal prosecutor’s office, two of which took place in Laeken and Jette as part of the investigation into the Paris attacks. Two arrests were made. Six other raids took place in the city of Brussels, Jette, Uccle and Molenbeek-Saint-Jean at the homes of friends and family of Bilal Hafdi, one of the suicide bombers near the Stade de France. The federal prosecutor’s office says however that these raids are not directly linked to the attacks.
