Brussels prosecutors said police had carried out 13 new raids in various districts in and around the capital on Sunday, as part of the investigations following the double suicide bomb attacks.

In a statement, the federal prosecutor’s office said a total of nine people were questioned “in the context of a terrorism file.”

Five of them were later released.

The officials said they could not give further details.
