Four Belgian policemen have been injured and one nonwhite invader terrorist has been killed in a shootout in Brussels late this afternoon, Belgian broadcaster RTBF has reported.
The shootings took place during a search of a house which started mid-afternoon in the southern Brussels suburb of Forest, which is described by an official guide to the city as a “multicultural commune.”
During the shootout, several terror suspects escaped through the roof, police said. A dragnet perimeter was set up, but the nonwhites appeared to have escaped.
At about 6 pm, a police task force stormed an apartment, and were met with a hail of gunfire in which the policemen were injured. The shooter, taking shelter inside, was killed by return fire.
Traffic and public transport in the area were halted, and workers at the nearby Audi Brussels factory were ordered to stay inside the factory buildings. Workers who had finished their day’s work could come out of doors at the rear of the buildings.
The police raids were coordinated with French police and are connected to the refugee-terrorist attacks in Paris late last year. Brussels police denied that they were looking for Salah Abdeslam, a member of one of the Paris attack gang who holds Belgian nationality.
The racial demographics of Forest can be seen from this picture of residents gathered to watch the shootout this afternoon.
Forest is well-known to be overrun with nonwhite invaders, even though the Belgian government has made it illegal to record racial origins.
In 2009, a Green Party politician, Luckas Vander Taelen, caused a stir when he wrote an article in De Standaard newspaper about his experiences “living next to [the] mostly North African neighborhood” that, he wrote, “even with the most multicultural bias, you can’t describe as anything but a ghetto.”
Vander Taelen went on to tell of the insults and abuse both he and his daughter faced as they passed through an area in Forest, from Rue de Mérode to the Gare du Midi. Once, on his daily bicycle commute, a young driver spat in his face; his daughter, then a teenager, stopped venturing into the neighborhood after she was called “many bad things.”
