Salah Abdeslam was captured in a raid in Molenbeek neighborhood of Brussels, and taken into custody Friday afternoon local time.

Abdeslam had previously escaped a raid on Tuesday, and had been one of Europe’s most wanted men since authorities uncovered his connection to the terror attacks that killed 130 people.

Shortly after it was reported that Abdeslam was captured, Euronews reported that one person was still holed up at the site of the raid.
