15 arrested in Belgium terror sweep
BRUSSELS, Belgium - Belgian authorities say more than a dozen people have been detained in Belgium and two arrested in France in an anti-terror sweep following a firefight in which two suspected terrorists were killed.
Eric Van der Sypt, a Belgian federal magistrate, said Friday that a dozen searches had led to the discovery of four military-style weapons including Kalashnikov assault rifles.
Belgian police on Thursday moved in on a suspected terrorist hideout in the eastern city of Verviers, killing two suspects and wounding and arresting a third.
Sypt says the terrorists' goal was to kill police on the street or in their offices.
