BRUSSELS - The arrests of at least four people by Greek anti-terrorism police are not linked to a probe into a jihadist cell broken up this week in Belgium, the Belgian prosecutor's office said Sunday.

"There is no connection between these people and the enquiry" in Belgium, Eric Van Der Sypt, spokesman for the federal prosecutor's office, said. Greek anti-terrorism police said they were checking whether those arrested included Abdelhamid Abaaoud, the 27-year-old suspected mastermind of the Belgian cell.
