Brussels, Jan 16: Two people have been killed in an anti-terrorism operation in the east Belgian town of Verviers on Thursday.
A third person was injured in a raid on a house where jihadi sympathisers were suspected to be residing, Xinhua reported citing the Mayor's office source.
A witness told La Libre Belgique newspaper that, "I heard two explosions. I left and saw two young men run. They were 25 to 30 years, looked Arabic and were dressed in black and wore a hat. They walked towards the Pakistani and Afghan district."
The raid comes a week after the major terrorist incidents in Paris.
The operation was mainly directed at those who have recently returned to the country from Syria.
