Paris attacks mastermind Abdeslam held in Belgium
A police operation underway in a Brussels neighbourhood has captured Salah Abdeslam, fugitive suspect in the November Islamic extremist attacks in Paris. Abdeslam was wounded and captured, Molenbeek police superintendent Johan De Becker confirmed. The mayor of the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, Francois Schepmans, earlier confirmed two people were injured in the operation, which she said are continuing. She couldn’t confirm Belgian media reports that Salah Abdeslam, the main fugitive from the Paris attacks, was one of two people hurt. The raids come after Belgian authorities said that fingerprints in an apartment raided earlier this week in another Brussels neighborhood belonged to Abdeslam.
