Belgium PM: Belgium will 'shoulder terror risk'

A suspected jihadist group targeted in a major anti-terror raid on Thursday had been planning to kill policemen in the street and at police stations, Belgian prosecutors say.

The planned attacks were imminent, they said, adding that two suspects shot dead in Verviers during the raids were still being identified.

Belgium's Prime Minister Charles Michel said "vigilance and prudence" was in place, and that the threat from terrorism was a risk that the authorities would shoulder.
