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.
