‘Number of’ arrests in Belgium connected to Paris attacks

PARIS – Belgium’s justice minister says authorities have made several arrests related to the deadly attacks in Paris.

Minister Koen Geens told the VRT network that the arrests came after a car with Belgian license plates was seen close to the Bataclan theatre in Paris on Friday night, one of the places where victims were killed.

He said it was a rental vehicle and police organized several raids in the St. Jans Molenbeek neighbourhood in Brussels on Saturday.

Geens said “there were arrests relating to the search of the vehicle and person who rented it.” He said the number of arrests was “more than one.”
