Greece Arrests Suspects Connected with Belgian Jihadists

Par8074901

Greek police have arrested at least four suspects over alleged links to a suspected terror plot in Belgium, BBC reported. One of the men may have been in contact with the cell in Verviers, Belgium, where police killed two suspects in a shootout on Thursday. Belgian authorities suspected the two of preparing a substantial terrorist attack.

The Thursday evening raids in Belgium yielded guns, ammunition, explosives, police uniforms and a large amount of money. Prosecutors suspect the group had planned to kill police officers. They charged five people on Friday with “participating in the activities of a terrorist group.”

The arrests in Greece were made based on a request made by Belgian authorities to Athens on Friday.

Greek news outlets said DNA tests, pictures and fingerprints of the suspects were sent to Belgium for verification. All four suspects were of Moroccan descent.

Greek intelligence spotted at least six Islamic State recruits entering their country, including a French citizen carrying a computer system memory stick with instructions for making bombs.

Belgium has apparently become a major recruiting center for Islamic terrorists, and authorities suspect that as many as 450 have been recruited there and sent to fight for ISIS in the Middle East.
