Sixteen people have been arrested following raids across Brussels – but Paris suspect Salah Abdeslam was not among those detained.

At a news conference, officials said a total of 19 houses were searched in the city – and during the operations, police fired two shots at a vehicle in Molenbeek.

One of those arrested was injured when his car tried to ram into police during an attempted getaway.

Eric Van der Sypt, a Belgian federal prosecutor, said no firearms or explosives were discovered – and added that although the police raids have ended, their investigation is ongoing.

According to Sky’s Enda Brady, who is in Brussels, there are some unsubstantiated reports in Belgian media that Abdeslam was in a BMW heading towards the German border.
