Authorities in Belgium made ten arrests after raiding 11 different locations in a terrorism investigation. Many of the arrests were made along the Limburg border with the Netherlands, reported Belgian media outlet Het Belang van Limburg based on information from the federal prosecutor.

No weapons or explosives were found. The investigation is not believed to be connected to the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
