Topic: Dozens held across Europe in Islamist suspect sweeps

By Philip Blenkinsop and Robert-Jan Bartunek PARIS/VERVIERS, Belgium (Reuters) - Belgian, French and German police interrogated dozens of Islamist suspects on Friday as much of Europe remained on heightened security alert after last week's killings in Paris and raids in Belgium in which two gunmen were killed. In Paris there was a fresh scare when a gunman took several people hostage at a post office in a northwestern suburb. Belgian police questioned 13 suspects and France held two people on Belgium's request, a day after two gunmen were killed during raids against an Islamist group that authorities said were planning to attack police. French police said they had arrested 12 people suspected of helping the Islamist gunmen behind attacks last week on a satirical magazine and kosher supermarket in Paris.
