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.

Adele has paid tribute to the victims of the Brussels terrorists attacks and criticised the killers who carried them out.
The singer dedicated her song 'Make You Feel My Love' to those caught up in the bombings, saying "This is for Brussels" in a clip posted on social media.
She laid into the killers, telling them "You're on your own" onstage at the O2 on the last night of her London residency.
"We're all united," she told the crowd. "So that makes us better than them."
There were 280 terrorism-related arrests in Britain last year, according to figures published by the Home Office, including a record number of children.
Sixteen under-18s were held in the year ending December, which was up from 10 in the previous year.
This was the highest number of arrests for the age group in a calendar year since data collection started in 2001.
The statistics also showed that a rising number of women are being arrested as part of counter-terrorism investigations.
Last year 45 female suspects were held - an increase of 15 on 2014. This continues an "upward trend" seen in recent years, statisticians said.
However, the overall number of terrorism-related arrests in 2015 was down 3% compared with the previous year.
The figures also revealed that:
- There have been 3,157 terrorism-related arrests since the September 11 attacks in the US in 2001.
- There were 71 arrests in the last three months of December 2015 - an increase of nearly 50% compared with the previous quarter.
- 143 people are in custody for terrorism-related offences, with another 25 jailed for domestic extremism or separatism.
- 78% of those arrested were of British or British dual nationality.
