Two police wounded by ‘Islamist’ on France’s Reunion island:

(Reunion) Two police officers have been shot and wounded during the arrest of a suspected radical Islamist on the French island of Reunion. The 20 year old gunman, a recent convert to Islam was described as a "dangerous individual" and was detained with his mother. He was wanted for "glorifying terrorism," the Interior Ministry said, adding that he "refused to be arrested and fired a rifle at police". Weapons and ingredients for making explosives were later found at their apartment in the town of Saint Benoit.
