BRUSSELS - One person was wounded and detained in a major police operation in the northern Brussels borough of Schaerbeek, Belgian public broadcaster RTBF quoted the local mayor as saying.

Bernard Clerfayt said the person was linked to bomb attacks in Brussels and to a foiled plot this week near Paris.

Heavily armed police and military with trucks cordoned off an area around a major intersection and three blasts were heard which Clerfayt said were controlled explosions.

Broadcaster RTL quoted a witness as saying police approached a person at a bus stop and asked the person to remove a jacket.
