Belgium

Police arrested a 52-year-old man for threatening to bomb a Belgian newspaper because he did not like its coverage of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris; he was previously convicted of arson against a right-wing political party. About 20,000 people marched in Brussels yesterday against extremism and attacks on free speech. Authorities are seeking to tap phone calls of suspected terrorists and to take further measures against the radicalization of inmates in Belgian prisons.
