West Flemish woman charged with facilitating a terrorist attack

A 24-year-old woman from Wevelgem has been charged with aiding persons preparing to commit an atrocity. The woman is suspected of involvement in the activities of a terrorist organisation.

Police raided the woman's home on the night of 7 March but did not find any arms or explosives. The investigation is not linked to the Brussels or Paris attacks.

Federal prosecutors say that the investigation showed that the woman provided support to persons intending to commit an attack in Europe.
