Police across Europe conducted raids on suspected terrorists from France to Belgium to Germany Thursday night. Officials say some of the suspects were connected to last week's terror attacks in Paris while others planned to stage their own attacks on police.
The most significant raids were likely the ones in Belgium where police say suspects had an imminent attack planned. In this video captured by an amateur photographer, you can hear the gunfight as police killed two men. (Video via YouTube / Frederic Hausman)
That raid in Verviers was just one of at least 10 in the country leading to 15 arrests. Prosecutors later briefed media saying the men killed in Verviers had automatic rifles, explosives, knives, fake IDs and police uniforms. (Video via i>TELE)
