Belgium’s police have detained two people over alleged financing of terrorism during searches in Belgium’s Anderlecht municipality and the city of Ghent, the Belgian Federal Prosecutor’s Office said Friday.




The searches were reportedly conducted on Thursday.


“Two people were detained and delivered for police questioning. One of them was released after having been checked and questioned. Within hours the decision on the preliminary arrest of the second detainee will be made by the court investigator,” the statement read.


The Prosecutor’s Office added that no weapons or explosives were found during the searches.
