2 explosions heard during Belgian police search

Two small explosions are heard during a major police action in the Brussels neighborhood of Molenbeek amid a manhunt for a suspect in the Paris attacks. Dozens of masked and heavily armed security officials had sealed off the area and neighbors were told to stay out of harm’s way.

Police refuse to provide any details about who may have set off the explosions or the purpose for them.

Two hours into the siege a first explosion is heard and a similar one follows it one hour later on a higher floor of a building with special security forces close by on roofs.
