Police in Belgium charged three people with terror-related crimes Saturday after police raided dozens of homes in Brussels overnight, according to prosecutors, NBC News reported.
The three were charged as “perpetrator or co-perpetrator, for having attempted to commit a terrorist murder and for participation in the activities of a terrorist group," the Belgium Federal Prosecutor's Office said in a statement.
Twelve people were initially suspected of planning new terror attacks — nine were later let go. A total of 40 were taken in for questioning and 152 car ports were searched, the statement said.
The country is still under a “level three” terror alert — the second highest — following the March 22 attacks on the Brussels airport and subway that killed 32 people.
