Belgian police detain two for questioning on Paris attacks

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Belgian police detained two people after a house search in Brussels in relation to 2015 attacks in Paris which left 130 people dead, the federal prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday.

A judge will decide in the coming hours whether charges can be brought against them, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement.

Many of the perpetrators of the Paris attacks had lived in Brussels, which has been a focus of investigations into militant cells.
