    Three people were arrested on Tuesday in Brussels during the search operations conducted in connection with the November 13 terrorist attacks in the French capital Paris, the Belgian prosecutor's office said on Tuesday.

    BRUSSELS (Sputnik) — The decision about the fate of the detainees will be made on Wednesday, according to the prosecutor's office.

    "As part of the investigation initiated by the federal prosecutor's office after the attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015, searches were carried out this morning in the Uccle municipality, Stalle street. As a result, three people were arrested and taken in for questioning," the prosecutors said.

    Apart from the devastating November 13 Paris attacks, which killed 130 people and injured over 350 others, the European community was later appalled by the March 22 series of blasts in Brussels, which claimed the lives of 35 people.

    Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries, including Russia, claimed responsibility for both series of attacks.

    The attacks are believed to be closely connected, as Mohamed Abrini, suspected of being involved in November 2015 attacks in Paris, recently admitted that he was accompanying the terrorists at Brussels airport, one of the locations targeted by terrorists last month.
