Belgium hunts terror ring over ‘fake police’ plot discovery of stash of weapons in Brussels

Officers are searching for more suspects after the discovery of a stash of weapons in Brussels, including police uniforms.

Police are hunting “several” members of a Belgian terror ring amid fears of a possible attack if the group “feel cornered”.

The ongoing search follows the discovery of a stash of weapons in a Brussels suburb, including Kalashnikov assault rifles, smaller firearms, ammunition, bullet proof vests, detonators, a blue police beacon and security and police uniforms.

The items found in a lock-up garage sparked concern that potential attackers could have been plotting to pose as police and other officials.

It is also feared the discovery of the store, which followed the search of six properties, could provoke an attack similar to the bombings in the Belgian capital last year.
