Brussels Airport police detained 30 terrorist suspects in one month

Between mid-November and mid-December anti-terror police detained more than 30 people at Brussels Airport on suspicion of “links with terrorism or offences linked to the security of the state”, local media reported Monday. Although 30 in one month equals one terror suspect per day (!), Interior Minister Jan Jambon said it was “too early” to give exact details.

After the terror attacks at Brussels International Airport and Maalbeek metro station in March 2016, some 109 specially trained officers have been deployed, with most of them working at the airport.
