Brussels - Several arrests were made on Wednesday in raids in Belgium more than two months after a $50m diamond heist at the country's main airport, the Sudpresse news group reported.
About 200 police officers searched 40 apartments, mostly in Brussels, and secured some of the haul, according to the news portal. There were no immediate details on the number of arrests.
It was also unclear whether the seized goods included diamonds or were proceeds from their sale.
Eight men broke through a fence at Brussels' Zaventem airport on 18 February and snatched an estimated 120 parcels from a diamond shipment that was being loaded from a Brink's security truck onto a Switzerland-bound plane.
Antwerp World Diamond Centre had estimated the value of the gems at $50m.
