The federal prosecutor's office said a Belgian national identified as Zakaria J and a Moroccan national named Mustafa E were being held over links to different suspects in the attacks.

The pair were detained on Wednesday during police raids on the Molenbeek area of Brussels, where several extremists have lived or stayed. No weapons or explosives were found during the searches.
