    Tell me why you don’t think this couldn’t happen in any one of our communities.

    To all the families who are grieving the loss of their loved ones, to all the children who have lost their innocence too soon, to the people of Paris, of France and to all tolerant, peace loving people everywhere, our hearts bleed.

    Re. arrests made in Belgium:

    Tonight’s raids in Belgium took place in Molenbeek, a district on the west side of Brussels.
    By a canal, and with discount clothes shops, kebab houses and trendy cafes that leave it resembling London’s Whitechapel, it has become notorious as the base of a number of terrorist suspects.

    It’s where the sister of the botched Thalys train attacker, Ayoub El Khazzani, lived in an unregistered flat this summer. El Khazzani had stayed in Brussels before the attack.
    It was also the home neighbourhood of two men who were killed in firefight with Belgian police in January, weeks after the Charlie Hebdo shooting. The pair had travelled to Syria and were suspected of running a terrorist cell preparing an attack in the Belgian town of Verviers.

    Mehdi Nemmouche, a Frenchman who killed four in an attack on Brussels’ Jewish Museum in 2014 and who is thought to have travelled to Syria, was also staying in the area prior to his attack.
    Finally, Abdelmoumaim Haddad, who was sought by Belgian police in Spain on an international arrest warrant for terrorism charges in 2014, was also found in the district.

    “The musician arrived on a bike, played the song in front of stunned crowds and then became overwhelmed with emotion as he left.
    ITV News was there to capture the emotional rendition.
    “What a moment,” one journalist at the scene said.

    My heart is breaking for everyone affected by these horrific acts of terrorism.
