Belgian Woman Arrested for Plotting Terror Attack


BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgian authorities have arrested a woman suspected of helping people who planned to launch an attack somewhere in Europe.

Federal prosecutors said Thursday that the 24-year-old woman, identified as Molly B., was picked up during a police raid overnight on March 7.

A statement said a probe shows “indications of assistance being provided by the woman to persons with the intention to commit an attack in Europe.”

She is charged with taking part in the activities of a terrorist organization.

The case is not linked to the deadly attacks in Paris in November 2015 or the suicide bombings at the Brussels airport and on the subway system a year ago. Belgian authorities have been on high alert since those attacks on March 22, in which 32 people were killed.
