6 BRITONS arrested in Belgium

Six BRITONS, Pakistani-born British have been arrested in Belgium after being spotted in old ambulances near Brussels while the capital was in lock down amid fears of a Paris-style terror attack.

A heavily-armed anti-terror unit swooped on the group near a petrol station which is regularly used by Salah Abdeslam – the fugitive terrorist still at large eight days after 130 people were killed in the French capital.

Six armoured trucks and a police car rushed in after the old ambulances were parked in a rest area beside the E411 highway in Bierges, south-east of Brussels, at around 2pm local time on Saturday.

The Pakistani-born British men were questioned by security forces as officers continued to search the ambulances – two Fiats and a Mercedes with British number plates.
