Belgian authorities, fearing an imminent terror attack, arrested 12 people in dozens of overnight raids in a major security operation, the Belgian federal prosecutor's office said Saturday.
The federal prosecutor said in a statement that the operation in 16 municipalities was mounted after investigation "necessitated an immediate intervention."
“It is not over. We remain under terror alert 3, it means that something is still up,” Interior Minister Jan Jambon said. “Last night, we had a very successful action.”
