Emergency Meeting Planned Following Shootout In Belgium

EMERGENCY MEETING PLANNED FOLLOWING SHOOTOUT IN BELGIUM

Belgian Prosecutors say the Paris suspect shot dead by police during anti-terror raids was Algerian and had been in Brussels illegally.

They’ve been holding a news conference this morning after their investigation into the Paris attacks led to a shootout in the Belgian capital yesterday.

The man killed by officers was reported to have been armed with an assault rifle and detectives say they found an Islamic State flag by his body.

Two other suspects were captured alive earlier after a major manhunt.

An emergency meeting of the country’s national security council has been called for later today.
