Belgium, Jan 16: Police gunned down two terrorists, who were planning to launch a series of attacks across Belgium, in an encounter. During the anti-terror raids overnight in the Belgian cities, police recovered arms and ammunition, cash, GPS devices and arrested 12 militants.

However, the names were not revealed by the police to media. The investigation is underway to find any links with the terror attacks in Paris.

Two suspects were killed, one was wounded and one arrested on Thursday operation. According to several foriegn media reports, the terrorists were seen in black dresses. Police recovered four Kalashnikovs, bomb making materials and police uniforms during the raids.

The anti-terror raids were conducted in the Belgian cities after the terror strikes stalled the neighbouring country France last week killing 17 people. The country responded strongly to the terrorism after the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo was attacked in which 12 people including the editor, cartoonist and journalists were killed for publishing cartoon of Prophet Muhammad.

Following repeated threats of terror strikes from Islamic States and Al Qaeda, which has claimed the responsibility for the Paris attacks, Belgium began raids and searches to foil the possible attacks and plans in the country.
