Reuters , Tuesday 6 Jun 2017

Belgian police detained 12 people in connection with the Brussels bombings of March last year, after a series of home searches, federal prosecutors said in a statement.

Police carried out 14 house searches and a judge will decide in the coming hours whether the 12 people will be detained further, the statement said.

The Islamic State Group-inspired bombings at Brussels Airport and on the city's metro system in March 2016 killed 32 people.
