Five people have been arrested and an arms cache found after overnight terror raids in France and Belgium linked to a bikers' club called the Kamikaze Riders, officials and sources said Wednesday.
Meanwhile, in northern France, a joint Franco-Belgian operation picked up a man on suspicion of having links to the Kamikaze Riders, a group implicated in terror offences in Belgium.
The raids and arrests come with Belgium and France still on high alert after several deadly attacks claimed by the ISIL group, with troops on patrol in Brussels and Paris to guard key buildings and infrastructure.
Only last month, a soldier shot dead a man who had attempted to set off a bomb in Central Station, right in the heart of the Belgian capital, sparking fears that further incidents might be in the offing.
Investigators said at the time they had evidence that the suspect, a 36-year-old Moroccan national, had IS sympathies.
They also found explosive materials in a raid on his home in Molenbeek, a Brussels district where many of the extremis who carried out the deadly Paris attacks in November 2015 and those in the Belgian capital in March 2016, grew up and found shelter.
