BRUSSELS – Belgium's federal prosecutor will hold an emergency news conference after news reports that two people are dead after a raid on a suspected terrorist cell.
The prosecutor and police couldn't immediately confirm the reports of dead.
The RTBF news website says two people were killed during Thursday's raid in the town of Verviers, and quotes a witness describing explosions and detonations near the train station.
Flemish broadcaster VRT said two were killed, one injured and one arrested.
The prosecutor's emergency news conference comes the week after attacks in neighboring France that killed 20 people, including three gunmen who attacked satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, a kosher market and police.
