Four policemen wounded and one terror suspect killed: In a police raid linked to Paris-terror, things turned dramatic in Brussels Tuesday.
–  The police were shot at,  Eric Van der Sypt of the Belgian prosecutors told AFP when talking about the drama that developed in the Belgian capital Tuesday afternoon.
It started as a regular, minor operation with  Belgian and French police in search of people with connections to Paris-terrorists from November.
Allegedly the police weren’t expecting things to become dramatic when they started to investigate a residence in Brussels borough Forest, but things developed quickly when one or more assailants started shooting as police opened the door.
In the end four policemen were wounded, one of them French.  The prosecutors confirmed on Tuesday night that one culprit armed with a Kalashnikov was killed by police.
