Fugitive Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam wounded in anti-terror raid, Belgian media report

- A wanted suspect in the Paris terror attacks who had been on the run since November reportedly was "caught alive" Friday during an anti-terror raid in Molenbeek, Belgium, a Brussels neighborhood, according to local media.

 

Police tell Fox News one of the two injured suspects "looks like" 26-year-old Salah Abdeslam. French president Francois Hollande told reporters in Brussels he would not give details on the "operation that is under way."

Hollande confirmed that the person being sought was linked to the Paris attacks but that any speculation over the fate of the individual would run counter to efforts "to stop or neutralize this individual." Investigators found Abdeslam's fingerprints in a nearby apartment they raided on Tuesday, a Belgian prosecutor said.

As Friday's events unfolded, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel rushed out of a European Union summit, and was expected to be joined at Belgian government offices by Interior Minister Jan Jambon, RTBF said.
