Police killed one suspect during an anti-terror raid in Belgium thought to be linked to last November's Paris attacks. The raid, led by French and Belgian police, turned into a standoff with suspects inside the apartment. During the operation, in which there were at least three bursts of gunfire, four officers were wounded.

Police killed "an unidentified individual wielding a Kalashnikov a gun used by some of the Islamic State militants in Paris," Reuters reports.

Two bursts of gunfire were reported around 3 p.m. local time, with the third reported more than an hour later. In the assault that occurred after 6 p.m. local time, one of the suspects was "neutralized," according to Belgian site RTL (http://www.rtl.be/info/regions/bruxelles/fusillade-en-cours-a-forest-les-policiers-sont-montes-sur-les-toits-audi-il-y-aurait-un-tireur-embusque%E2%80%94802261.aspx). Later it was confirmed that the suspect was killed.
