This has just been breaking. Police were carrying out a raid after tip off terrorists connected to Paris were hiding out there. Suspects had AK47's and started shooting when raided. Suspects are on the run but unknown number.

Keep safe everyone in Brussels. Hope they are caught soon!

From your source:

Police snipers surrounded the building where the suspects were holed up, but one of the gunmen has gone on the run.


Let me guess, Salah Abdeslam has managed to escape, again.

Yes I know does sound like that! I can't understand how they have managed to escape with snipers at the ready! Bit embarrassing if it is him. I just hope no one else gets hurt. I hope this doesnt cause the ones on the run to have their moment of "glory". Everyone will be coming home from work, school etc, it will be busiest time. Makes me wonder whether they had intelligence something was imminent otherwise why not do the raid middle of night, early morning?a reply to: angryhulk

'Knowing' he is on the run, the world most wanted man, following one of the largest manhunts in European history, I would fully expect them to release a fleet of choppers, emergency response units and road blocks basically everywhere. I'm not holding my breath though.

VTM news just said it's apparently a joint operation with french police. There's also a little school on lockdown within the perimeter so parents are waiting to get to their kids.

It's a standoff atm.

I do hope no stray bullets go flying when and if the shooting starts again.

Just looking at some of the photos in the meida so far i notice the insignia of the Elite Belgium DSU Police counter terrorism unit. Its only speculation but I would guess they were involved in the initial operation perhaps to arrest the suspect and something has gone wrong with 2 officers being injured.

That was my deduction as well.

Now, I have never been one for prophecies, but it comes to mind that a few years ago I was reading about a woman named Baba Vanga and that many of her prophecies (from the first half of the 20th century I do believe) were in regards to a Muslim invasion in Europe and the chaos that would follow. At the time I sort of scoffed at the stupidity of that, since I could not imagine a situation in which a wave of millions of Muslims would somehow end up spread throughout Europe all within a short period of time, let alone that they would cause chaos. I mean really? But with the rise of Islamic terrorism and ISIS, and the recent migration, as well as the attacks that are quickly becoming more and more of a norm, I no longer scoff. Coincidence or not, the reality is not far off.

Not if you lace the bullets with pig's blood. Then they are just infidels burning in hell, according to islam.

He sounds like a real life Jason Bourne

How does he keep managing to evade capture ?

During the first police intervention, an individual - which was one of the main 'target' - was shot while two other suspects went on the run.

Amount of Belgian policeman injured raised to 4.

Yes, according to the national Flemish television it had nothing to do with Salah Abdeslam. It was a routine house-call, nothing special operation-wise. 4 Belgian and 2 French police officers knocked on the door and got shot at with assault weapons. Apparently there's a joint operation between the French and Belgian police forces with officers from both sides across the borders, which can only be applauded imho.


Complete tally: 3 officers lightly wounded and 1 officer heavily wounded, no clue yet on who they are.

1 man got pinned down in the house and there's no real affirmation if there are 2 more on the run so far.

Edit: 1 man confirmed shot and 2 more confirmed on the run
