2 explosions heard in Brussels neighborhood

AP , Friday 18 Mar 2016

Two explosions have been heard in a Brussels neighborhood where a Paris attacks fugitive was captured and police were looking for another person.

The deputy mayor of the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek earlier told The Associated Press police were still searching for one person who is holed up in a house.

French television showed images of police dragging a man with a white hooded sweatshirt into an unmarked police car.

Earlier in the day, police captured Salah Abdeslam, who has been on the run for four months since the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people.

Molenbeek has issued an emergency plan to give shelter to people who cannot go home because of police operations.
