Belgian PM and intelligence chiefs review security in the country
At an emergency sitting of the Security Council in Brussels, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel along with intelligence chiefs is reviewing the country's level of security. This comes after authorities have identified the gunman killed in a raid targeting suspects in the Paris attacks. Police have also detained two others.
Eric Van Der Sypt, Belgian Federal Prosecutor: "From the moment the door of the flat was opened, at least two persons armed with a riot gun and a Kalashnikov opened fire towards them. In the short but very intense shoot-out three of the six officers suffered slight injuries, amongst which a French female police officer." Investigators are holding a man admitted to hospital near Brussels with a broken leg and another one who was detained near the scene of the shooting."
Investigators believe much of the planning and preparation for the November 13 shooting and bombing rampage in Paris that killed 130 people was conducted in Brussels by young French and Belgian nationals.
