Five people were arrested in Birmingham on Thursday and Friday in relation to alleged terrorist activities.
Four of the individuals – three men aged 26, 40 and 59 and a 29-year-old woman - were arrested in the city on Thursday evening.
A 26-year-old man was arrested at Gatwick airport in the early hours of Friday.
Assistant Chief Constable Marcus Beale said the arrests were part of an "extensive investigation" involving French and Belgian partners addressing "any associated threat to the UK following the attacks in Europe".
The five are currently being held for questioning.
ITV News Security Editor Rohit Kachroo said that a "large part of the investigation" had revolved around Mohamed Abrini, the so-called Brussels man-in the hat.
"He has been a significant figure in all of this and he's involved in the investigation that led up to these arrests today", he said.
