BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgian police detained 11 people after a series of raids across Brussels overnight as part of an investigation into possible returning fighters from Syria.
The federal prosecutors said in a statement on Wednesday that police had carried out searches at nine addresses in various districts of the Belgian capital and one district outside. No weapons are explosives were found.
A judge will determine later on Wednesday whether those detained would have to remain in custody.
