The mayor of the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek, Francois Schepmans, also confirmed two people were injured in the operation.Police are still surrounding Four Winds street, located just around the corner from Delaunoystraat, where Abdeslam is thought to have slipped away three days after the Paris attacks.
