A dozen people were arrested last week in a human smuggling investigation in Belgium, involving 25 house searches in Brussels and Antwerp. Iraqis had paid 15,000-20,000 euro for Belgian papers.

The investigation had been conducted by the human smuggling department of the Belgian federal police over a year. The people arrested are suspected of human smuggling and gang membership.
