PARIS — Belgian prosecutors on Wednesday identified the man who was killed during a counterterrorism raid the day before as an Algerian with potential links to radical Islam, while two other suspects from the raid, which left four police officers wounded, remained on the run.
The man, Mohamed Belkaid, a 35-year-old Algerian who was in Belgium illegally, tried to open fire on police officers and was shot and killed by a special forces sniper, according to Eric van der Sijpt, a spokesman for the federal prosecutor’s office.
