France Foils Major Jihadist Attack in Final Stages, Belgium Arrests Six Scuzlims
... or so they say. They need a win, don't they?
From Good Morning America:
The French plot was at the "advanced stage" of preparation and was discovered after a French national -- described as being at a "high level" in the plot -- was arrested this morning, Cazeneuve said.
There did not appear to be links "at this stage" between the plot foiled in France and the Paris or Brussels attacks, he added, saying the arrest is the result of weeks of investigation and the individual was involved in a "terror network" that planned to strike.
The raids in Argenteuil, about 8 miles outside of the center of Paris, were ongoing and the streets were sealed off. 6 Arrested in Brussels Police Operation after French Raids Foil Planned Terror Attack (ABC News)
Investigators are actively seeking a second suspect in the Brussels metro bombing who has been seen on surveillance camera footage inside the subway station with suicide bomber Khalid El-Bakraoui, a Belgian police source told ABC News.
That second suspect, who is unidentified, was spotted on the subway platform at the Maelbeek station with El-Bakraoui, according to police. El-Bakraoui is thought to be dead after detonating a bomb on the subway train as it was pulling out of the station.
The accomplice now being sought has yet to be identified, but police do not believe he died in the Tuesday attack.SPEAKING OF "WINS".
