Reports are emerging of an anti-terror operation conducted early Wednesday morning in Lille, France. Members of the elite French special forces anti-terrorism unit known as RAID (Research, Assistance, Intervention, and Dissuasion) were dispatched to two locations within the city, where they have reportedly taken two women into custody.
RAID used explosives to breach the door of one of the houses they entered in the early morning, providing the neighborhood with a surprise wake-up call and resulting in placing a 32-year-old woman under arrest. The other woman, aged 33, was reportedly arrested elsewhere in the city.
