PM Charles Michel Inform Belgian Police Arrest Several Over Paris Attacks
BRUSSELS: Belgian police arrested several suspects in Brussels on Saturday during raids connected to the Paris attacks, including one who was in the French capital at the time of the carnage, Prime Minister Charles Michel said.
Michel told Belgian television that the arrests were linked to “suspect vehicles” identified during the investigation by French police into the attacks that killed at least 129 people.
The possible link to the new Paris attacks raises fresh fears that Belgium is becoming a hotbed of militancy, coming just months after connections emerged to the Charlie Hebdo attacks and August’s attempted attack on an Amsterdam-Paris train.

“A case has immediately been opened linked to suspect vehicles in Paris, to check people linked to those vehicles. There have been several arrests,” Michel told RTL television.
He separately told RTBF television: “It is believed or suspected that one of these people was in Paris last night.”
The Belgian government would consider further security measures, Michel added.
The Paris prosecutor said that one of the vehicles used in Friday’s attacks in the French capital was registered in Belgium and hired by a French national living in Belgium.
Belgian Justice Minister Koen Geens said separately on RTBF television that the arrests in the capital’s down-at-heel Molenbeek neighborhood “can be seen in connection with a grey Polo car rented in Belgium” found near the concert hall in the French capital where scores of people were killed.
Parking tickets from Molenbeek were found inside the car with Belgian license plates, Belgian media said.
