BRUSSELS: Belgian authorities have charged two men with terrorist offenses after raids overnight, the federal prosecutor’s office said Saturday amid reports of a planned attack on a Euro 2016 fanzone. “Two persons… were taken for questioning and arrested by the investigating judge,” a statement said. “They are charged, as perpetrator or co-perpetrator, for participation (in) the activities of a terrorist group.” It said several houses were raided overnight in Verviers, in eastern Belgium, and in Tournai, close to the border with France. No weapons or explosives were found, it said, adding that no further information would be given as the investigation continued.
