    Greek police say they have arrested a Syrian man on the island of Crete who is wanted in Belgium for alleged involvement in a migrant-smuggling ring.

    A police statement says the 51-year-old suspect was taken into custody Thursday in western Crete.

    Friday's statement said the man is wanted in Belgium for alleged participation in a criminal organization, facilitating the illegal entry and residence of migrants, forgery and dealing in forged documents.

    The suspect appeared before a prosecutor Friday in Crete's western town of Hania.
