Police foil terror plot in Belgium

Jihad Watch Belgian authorities arrested 12 people after conducting anti-terror raids in Brussels and across the country amid press reports of a plot to attack fans gathering to watch a Belgium soccer game.

Security forces raided a string of properties and 152 lock-up garages on Friday night and in the early hours of Saturday, Belgium’s federal prosecutor in Brussels said in an e-mailed statement. Prime Minister Charles Michel called for calm and said public events will go ahead with a heightened level of security. The country’s terror alert will remain at level 3 out of 4.

“The security services have obviously been extremely vigilant,” Michel told reporters after an emergency meeting with cabinet members and counter-terror chiefs. “We will continue our fight against extremism, against radicalism, against terrorism.”

12 people arrested, and 152 lock up garages (?) raided. I assume the lock-up garages are something like storage rentals in the US.
