Belgian authorities say two of the gunmen who staged the deadly assaults on Paris on Friday were from the capital Brussels, and its poorer municipality of Molenbeek. Police detained several people in the mainly Muslim neighborhood, and brought a bomb disposal van to the area. Meanwhile, French police have now released the name of one suspected gunman -- Ismael Omar Mostefai, a 29-year-old who lived in the city of Chartres, and is reportedly of Algerian descent. The news has further divided Europe over how to handle the wave of refugees flooding into the country, prompting conservatives to demand stricter controls on migration.
