SIX PEOPLE ARRESTED IN BRUSSELS POLICE OPERATION


Six people were arrested in a series of police operations in Brussels, two days after jihadist attacks in Brussels left 31 dead.
Three of the suspects were detained yesterday “outside the door of the federal prosecutor’s office”, in the city centre.Two further people were arrested elsewhere in the city and the sixth was detained in Jette, on the outskirts of the capital, without giving any further details on their identity.

Police found a large stash of explosives and other bomb-making material earlier this week in an apartment in Schaerbeek believed used by the suicide bombers.
Schaerbeek residents described hearing detonations during the police raids. It was unclear whether they were explosions or controlled detonations.
Meanwhile, Indian embassy has intensified search for Indian national Raghavendran Ganeshan. Ganeshan has been missing in Brussels since Tuesday’s deadly terror attacks.
Authorities suspect that the total number of attackers in the Brussels terror attack were at least 5.
While three suicide bombers struck Brussels airport and a metro train in attacks, the manhunt has been launched for fourth and fifth suspects.
According to authorities, 4th Suspect is this man in the picture, a cctv grab from the Zaventem departure hall.
This attacker with white jacket is the third suspect who came to the airport with a suitcase laden with explosives.
The two who carried out the dastardly attack have been identified as Ibrahim El Bakraoui and bomb-making expert Najim Laachraoui.
The third attacker whose suitcase bomb failed to detonate is now the subject of intensified search and combing operations all over Europe.
The attack could have been considerably worse.
The Belgian prosecutor said a third unexploded bomb was by far the biggest device and had that exploded, many more people could have been killed.
Meanwhile, investigating agencies now say that a second attacker is suspected of taking part in the bombing this week of a Brussels subway train and may be at large.
Ibrahim’s brother Khalid El Bakraoui has been identified as the metro attacker.
The authorities are also suspecting that the same Islamic State cell was behind the attacks in Brussels and bloodshed in Paris last year.
Turkey said it had detained Ibrahim El Bakraoui near the Syrian border in June 2015 and deported him as a “foreign terrorist fighter”, piling more pressure on Belgian authorities who have faced criticism for failing to tackle the extremist menace.
Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj tweeted that the Indian embassy has intesified search for Indian national Raghavendran Ganesh.
His brother has reached Brussels and is being assisted by the embassy there to locate Mr Ganesh.
Ganesh, an Infosys employee has been missing in Brussels since Tuesday’s deadly terror attacks. He was travelling in a metro, the minister has revealed.
Meanwhile, people in Brussels gathered to pay tribute to those killed in Tuesday’s terrorist attacks.
There is a sense of shock, and sadness in the city as it shows tremendous determination that life must go on.
But there is also a sense that a pervasive threat of terrorism will be part of that life.
The metro stations reopened on Wednesday, with stricter safety measures put in place.
All passengers, including children, were frisked before being allowed to enter stations and carry-on luggage checked in case of any dangerous items.
Tuesday’s blasts were the third terror attack in Europe in 15 months.
MEanwhile , Salah Abdeslam, the prime surviving suspect for November’s Paris attacks, will no longer fight extradition to France but wants to return to his home country to explain himself as soon as possible, his lawyer said on Thursday.
