Belgian Official: 9 Raids Yield 9 Detentions

France Paris Attacks

Belgian authorities say they have detained 9 people during as many raids in and around Brussels relating to the Paris attacks or one of the suicide bombers.

A prosecution official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said that two of the detentions were related to Friday's attack. Seven others involved the entourage of Bilal Hafdi, one of the suicide bombers at the stadium, but related to issues from before the Paris attacks.

The official refused to provide any details on the two detainees linked to the Paris attacks. There are currently already two suspects in custody charged with terrorist murder and belonging to a terrorist group.
