Seven homes in the Brussels district of Molenbeek were raided on Sunday, as well as the Flemish towns of Geraardsbergen and Mechelen, the office of the federal prosecutor said. No weapons or explosives were found. “A judge specializing in terrorism matters had asked for the home searches to be carried out,” the office said, as cited by Reuters. Newspaper DH had earlier said that those being held were suspected of planning a militant attack.
