Belgian authorities said Saturday that they have detained a sixth person suspected of ties to the Brussels bombings, a group that includes the last known fugitive of last year's Paris attacks and a Swedish fighter with possible links to attacks in both Brussels and Paris.

While authorities continued to conduct raids throughout the country, Jan Jambon, the country’s interior minister, warned that there “are perhaps other cells that are still active on our territory.” Brussels remains under the second-highest terror alert, meaning an attack is considered likely.
