Ten teenagers were taken into custody Saturday in Belgium for plotting terror attacks on Christmas carnivals in the country, according to reports. The arrests came at a time when the risk of such attacks remains high in Europe and several countries have stepped up their security.

Saturday’s arrests were confirmed by Eric Van Der Sijpt, spokesman for the Belgium prosecutor’s office, who said the teens received instructions online about how to kill a person and to make a bomb.

“[The teenagers] were recruited by terrorist groups to prepare or commit terrorist acts,” the spokesman said, according to Sputnik news that cited Belgian newspaper Laatste Nieuws.

The identities of those arrested remained unknown.
