Belgian police have arrested and charged a man with planning a terror attack against the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, prosecutors said on Monday.

The man, identified only by his initials M.G., was arrested on Saturday. He denies accusations, the prosecutors said in a statement.

Prosecutors said they had “converging indications” that led them to believe the man was plotting an attack.

To protect the ongoing investigation, no more details will be released at this stage, the statement said.
