Two people were arrested in Belgium on suspicion they were planning attacks in the country's capital city, Brussels, during the holidays.

The pair had planned to target the city on New Year's Eve, according to a statement from the country's federal prosecutor's office Tuesday.

The investigation revealed "the threat of serious attacks that would target several emblematic places in Brussels and be committed during the end-of-year holidays," the prosecutor's office said.

The statement did not specify if the two people were male or female, but said they were arrested after a series of searches on Sunday and Monday in Brussels, the Liege region and Flemish Brabant.

No weapons or explosives were found in the raids, but police reportedly seized military-style clothing and computer equipment.
