Belgian police have detained 15 people for questioning after raids in an investigation into the financing of militant groups and recruiting fighters for Islamic State in Syria, prosecutors say.

The raids were not linked to the Brussels attacks of March 22 in which 32 people were killed, they added in a statement on Tuesday.

Of the 15 people detained, four will be facing an investigating judge, prosecutors said.

The raids involved police in the cities of Antwerp and Ghent in northwestern Belgium.
