3 Brussels Police Officers Shot in Terrorism Raid

via New York Times
Three police officers were shot and slightly wounded on Tuesday afternoon during a counterterrorism operation in Brussels linked to theParis attacks of Nov. 13.
The shooting, which occurred around 4 p.m. in a section of Brussels known as Forest, followed a gunfight between police officers and several suspects, according to Belgian and French officials. It touched off a major hunt for what the authorities described as two gunmen.
“A house search was being conducted in Forest,” Eric Van der Sijpt, a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office in Brussels, said in a phone interview. “The police were immediately fired at through the door. We have wounded people, but not severely. The house is surrounded and a proper search will be conducted. We can’t comment on the identities of the possible terrorists or something else.”
Europe will burn this summer.  If the Pentagon was smart they'd send dependents home now, instead of waiting.
