Six arrests in Brussels police operation after bombings

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian police detained six people on Thursday in the course of investigations into Tuesday’s Islamic State suicide bombings in Brussels, the federal prosecutors office said in a statement.

It said the arrests were made during police searches in the Brussels boroughs of Schaerbeek in the north and Jette in the west, as well as in the centre of Brussels itself.

A decision on charging the suspects would be made on Friday. No further details were available.
