MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Two people were detained in Belgium on Friday on suspicion of terrorism links, Belgian federal prosecutor’s office said.

"As part of a federal investigation into involvement in terrorist group activities three searches have been conducted today upon request of the judge in charge of terrorism-related cases," the communique said.

Meanwhile, Belgian RTBF channel reported that one of the detained was involved in an operation linked to the messenger Telegram, where he said he was planning a terrorist attack.

French police on Wednesday arrested a teenager, who was potentially involved in a terrorist attack in Paris and was allegedly in touch with Rachid Kassim, French jihadist. Rachid Kassim is based in Syria where he is suspected of sponsoring attacks in Europe and who regularly calls on terrorism attacks by means of Telegram. Investigation will clarify whether the arrests in Belgium and France are linked, RTBF says.
