Belgium Arrests Two in Probe Over Returning Syria Fighter

Updated on

Belgian arrested two suspects and issued arrest warrants against three others following anti-terror raids Monday.

Police said earlier that they simultaneously raided 21 locations as part of two probes into jihadist Chechen groups, the country’s federal prosecutors’ office said in a statement. Prosecutors said the arrests were based on police information concerning a wounded man who had returned to Belgium after taking part in the jihad in Syria.
