The Associated Press is reporting that three George Mason University students have been arrested for allegedly possessing bomb-making equipment in their dorm room.

The as-yet unidentified students were arrested last Wednesday night after flames were seen coming from their dorm-room window. Along with drug paraphernalia, the students were found with equipment that police said could be used for making bombs.

The arrests have added meaning after today’s massive attacks in Brussels that have so far claimed more than 30 lives.

George Mason University is located in Fairfax County, Virginia outside of Washington DC which has been the site of jihadi organizing and recruitment in recent years and even months.
