Two of the four police officers who were injured in a shootout during a terrorism raid in Belgium on Tuesday have been released from the hospital, Interior Minister Jan Jambon is quoted as saying by the Belga news agency.
Two others remain hospitalized, suffering from shock. Among the four officers is a French policewoman who was participating in a joint investigation team with her Belgian counterparts, Jambon says.
Prosecutors are expected to issue a statement with further details about the violent incident later Tuesday.
Belgium's National Security Council, which includes the ministers responsible for security matters and officials from intelligence services, will meet on Wednesday, Prime Minister Charles Michel says.
