Man Arrested on Suspicion of Planning Attack Against U.S. Embassy in Brussels

A man is being held by police in Brussels, Belgium on suspicion of planning a terror attack on the U.S. embassy.

The counter-terror division of the Federal Police arrested the man, identified by the initials MG, on Saturday in the centre of Brussels, according to information received by Belgian broadcaster RTBF and reported Monday. 

He was reportedly being monitored by the country’s security services, and prosecutors said that they had “converging indications” that led authorities to believe that he was planning a credible attack against the U.S. diplomatic offices. 

“He was behaving in a way that was suspicious on several fronts and monitoring was therefore put in place against him,” said Eric Van Duyse, spokesman for the federal prosecutor.

“His statements suggested he was going to act soon,” he added.
