Terror suspects freed
MOSCOW: Belgian police have released three people detained during a counter-terrorism operation in the Brussels’ district of Molenbeek overnight, prosecutors said yesterday.
The Libre newspaper reported that the detainees were questioned at a police station and released after searches in four houses in Molenbeek had revealed nothing.
Belgium’s terror alert level remains high after bomb attacks on a Brussels airport and a metro station killed 32 and injured 300 last March.
Some of the terror suspects lived in Molenbeek. Islamic State claimed the attacks.
