    Two Muslim brothers have been arrested.

    This is a breaking story so very little information as yet.

    In b4 "how do you know they are Muslims?" This is a counter terrorism operation so OF COURSE they are Muslims. Everyone knows it, so why pretend? Let's not play games SJW's, this is getting too serious for that...

    Fantastic. Congrats to the Belgian authorities.

    Don't be too quick to congratulate them. The French authorities similarly arrested one of the terrorists behind the recent church attack in France for joining ISIS, but - for human rights reasons - left him on a very loose leash, loose enough for him to plot an attack. By loose leash, I mean that he was under a sort of house arrest, and they had a tag on him (not a GPS one, IIRC it was one that told them if he was in his house or not), which they turned off for 5 hours a day.
