    So after the last raid a few days ago in Forest, a new one in Moleenbeek, Brussels has reportedly resulted in Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam's capture, wounded but alive.

    Confirmed now from the Belgian Secretary of State that this is the case with a simple 'We got him' tweet:https://twitter.com/FranckenTheo/sta...74057995116545

    Joint statement from Hollande and Belgian PM Charles Michel is coming soon too.

    Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam has been wounded and arrested in a raid in Brussels, officials say.

    They said Abdeslam, who has been on the run since the November attacks, was wounded in the leg as police moved in on a flat in the Molenbeek area.

    "We got him" said Theo Francken, Secretary of State for Asylum and Migration, on Twitter (in Flemish).

    Abdeslam is a key suspect in the jihadist attacks in Paris which 130 people died.

    Abdeslam's fingerprints were found in a Brussels flat raided on Tuesday.

    But Belgian prosecutors told the BBC it was not clear exactly when he was at the flat because the prints could not be dated.

    Belgian PM Charles Michel had to urgently leave an EU-Turkey summit in Brussels, a BBC reporter says.

    It's a shame there is no death penalty. Otherwise we could have hanged him (after a trial naturally).

    Deputy mayor says he was shot in the leg.

    Also the raid is ongoing as police are looking for another person in the suburb. You could hear explosions in the background of the BBC live report, very surreal.

    Glad he has been captured, he clearly needed to be and the fact that he is still alive means there is hope that he will reveal who else was involved, doubtless there are others who knew about, planned and supported the operation.

    Joint statement from Hollande and Michel will happen at 7:30pm GMT now.

    Confirmed that 2 explosions were heard on live TV by multiple stations so the raid is assumed to be ongoing.

    The police and special forces people who carry out these actions are incredibly brave.

    If only this was true. When he is put in a nice cozy cell he will be free to radicalise any errant fool to become another Jihadi. These people should be put in total isolation, then they will be free to commune with both their god and their crime.

    If he's guilty, he should be sent to some outpost in the middle of nowhere and treated like the garbage that he is.
