    Belgian police launched late on Sunday consecutive searches in Molenbeek, a multinational east Brussels commune, in connection with the deadly Paris terror attacks, local media reported.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – According to the RTBF public broadcasting company, the raid is performed at an empty house and some other locations on one of the district’s streets.

    Belgium has been on high terror alert since the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. A number of attack perpetrators were linked to the country, including tragedy’s mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud.

    At least 130 people were killed and over 360 injured in suicide bombings and shootings at a football stadium, a concert hall and restaurants in the French capital.
