ABIDJAN - French police are taking part in an operation with their Belgian counterparts in Brussels as they hunt a gunman who wounded officers during a raid linked to November's Islamist militant attacks in Paris, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said.

"It was in the context of a raid. A team made up of Belgian and French police officers intervened and came under fire - shots from heavy weapons," Cazeneuve said at a news conference in Ivory Coast.
