BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Police searched houses around Brussels as part of an anti-terrorism investigation on Wednesday, the federal prosecutor's office said.


The operations were focused on about eight areas and were not linked to recent attacks in Brussels or Paris, a spokesman for the prosecutor added.


Suicide bombers killed 32 people at Brussels Airport and the city's metro system in March 2016.
