Police in Belgium have arrested five people in their investigation into last month’s Paris terror attacks, the Belgian federal prosecutor’s office announced Monday.

Police arrested two brothers and a third person Sunday in Brussels based on phone records, the prosecutor’s office said.

Two more people were arrested Monday morning in Laeken. Police said no guns or explosives were found at either location.

The November 13 terror attacks in Paris killed 130 people and wounded hundreds. The attackers, armed with assault rifles and explosives, targeted six locations across the city.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
