Belgian authorities say that searches in the wake of last year’s deadly terror attacks in Paris have uncovered a video linked to a person working in Belgium’s nuclear industry.

The Federal Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement on Wednesday that an “investigation is actively ongoing.”

Belgian media reported that several hours of video were filmed near the home of a man thought to be a senior official at the Mol nuclear waste facility in the Flanders region. The house of the unidentified man was apparently filmed from a nearby wood.

Prosecutors declined to confirm that information or provide details.

Security services have long feared that terrorists might get their hands on radioactive material. It comes as a cloud hangs over some of Belgium’s nuclear plants after a number of unplanned shutdowns.
