Saturday was the start of the Brussels, Belgium Lockdown in search of the suspected gunman for the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam. As this anti-terror mission was happening, authorities advised the people of Belgium not to report the movements of the officers online. Despite what the Belgian authorities said, people used Twitter to discuss the raids, with the hashtag #BrusselsLockdown. Belgians tweeted out tons of videos and pictures of cats to try to hide any information on the operation. Since then, Belgian police have made 16 arrests in anti-terror raids, but Salah Abdeslam is still yet to be found.
