    'It is not over. We remain under terror alert 3, it means that something is still up' - Belgian police foil major terror attack planned during Belgium-Ireland Euro 2016 clash

    Three men charged with terror-related crimes
    * Dozens of houses raided in Belgium overnight
    * Fans watching matches were potential targets
    * Other targets included crowded shopping areas
    * Europe is on high security alert

    Belgian police have arrested 12 suspects in a major anti-terror operation overnight amid security alerts in Belgium and France around the Euro 2016 match this afternoon between Belgium and the Republic of Ireland.

    No weapons or explosives had been found during the overnight searches, which also involved 152 garage lockups.

    I hope nothing does happen [obviously], while I'm not a football fan, I don't want to hear my friends moan about the Euros being cancelled, or a game that wasn't played.
