Sounds like the cops raided something before any attack took place.

Channel 4 TV says people came back from Syria, police followed them home, and then tried to arrest them. Police say the returnees were about to launch an attack, 2 suspects killed one badly injured.

An arms dealer in Charleroi, in Belgium, has given himself up, after supplying automatic weapon to the terrorist in Paris.

Nice and tidy. But a judge issued 10 search warrants, some in Brussels, so maybe more trouble coming along.
