Belgium arrests 3 over Syria recruiting, terror charges

Belgian authorities have arrested three of eight people they picked up earlier this week during anti-terror raids centering on the recruitment of people to fight in Syria.

The prosecutor's office said Wednesday it charged two people from Kosovo and a Serb with "participation in the activities of a terrorist group." All three are in their twenties.

Police detained the eight during nine searches in homes in northern and central Belgium early Tuesday. Five were let go.
