Paris attacks suspect Abdeslam captured in Brussels


Belgium police have arrested five people in counter-terror raids in the Capital Brussels, including Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam. Thierry Werts, a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office told a press conference Friday that special federal police forces arrested Abdeslam, who has been on the run since the deadly November 13 attacks in which 130 people died. Abdeslam was wounded lightly in the leg during an afternoon raid in the capital’s gritty immigrant neighbourhood of Molenbeek. Werts said he was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Abdeslam, 26, and four other suspects were arrested in the gritty Brussels neighbourhood of Molenbeek, where the Franco-Moroccan allegedly helped plan the November 13 attacks in which 130 people died and 350 were injured.

The police also shot and slightly wounded another man at the same address and took him to hospital. Werts said another three people, all members of the same family who sheltered Abdeslam, were also arrested and will be interviewed by investigators.

At an earlier joint press conference, French President Francois Hollande and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel reported that Abdeslam and two other people had been arrested in the raids.
