A young man was detained in the Belgian city of Wavre on suspicion of plotting a terror attack, the spokesman for the federal prosecutor's office Eric Van Der Sypt said.
A Belgian daily La Derniere Heure reported earlier that the young Muslim convert identified went to his grandmother’s home on April 13 to say goodbye before carrying out an attack over the weekend.
The spokesman confirmed to the Belga news agency that a 22-year-old had been detained by anti-terror police and would face a judge soon who would decide whether he should stay in custody.
A laptop and cell phones were seized in the operation. The prosecution’s spokesman did not comment on what or when the suspect allegedly planned to target in the attack.
