Belgian police mount raid south of Brussels -media

BRUSSELS - Belgian federal police mounted a raid on Thursday in a small town south of Brussels linked to fears of a militant attack, public broadcaster RTBF said, adding that officers were looking for weapons and explosives.
RTBF said the information came from federal prosecutors.
A local police official in Sambreville told Reuters by telephone that an operation had been concluded but declined to say what the aim of it had been. A local government official referred all inquiries to the federal prosecutor in Brussels who is handling inquiries into the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris.
Federal police and prosecutors had no immediate comment.
The raid was in Auvelais, part of the commune of Sambreville, the Belgian media reports said.
