Added On June 19, 2016

Twelve people suspected of planning new attacks have been arrested during dozens of anti-terrorism raids in Belgium overnight, said a statement of the federal prosecutor's office released on Saturday.
The operations, mainly in Brussels and also in other 15 municipalities, came three days after the Belgian police received an anti-terror alert that warns of a series of imminent attacks in France and Belgium.
The prosecutor's office said the investigation continues, and the results of the investigation necessitated an immediate intervention.
Around 150 garage lockups were also searched, the prosecutor's office said, adding that no weapons or explosives have been found during the searches so far.
