    3 jihadists reportedly killed in counter-terrorism raid in Belgium

    At least 3 people were killed in an anti-terror raid in Belgium Thursday that one official confirmed was "jihadist related," and a man suspected of selling guns used in last week’s terror attacks in France was being detained in another part of the country, according to multiple reports.

    Sky News reported three jihadists who had recently returned from Syria were killed. Explosions and gunfire were apparently heard near the station, according to Belgium's public broadcaster RTBF. The Belga news agency said there were several casualties and police activity was continuing.

    "An operation is underway," a source in the mayor's office told AFP without giving further details.
