Of terrorists and . . . cats???
It seems Belgians have a sense of humor.
Last night, while anti-terrorism raids were launched throughout Brussels, the Belgian police used social media, including Twitter, to ask residents not to relay news of when and where the raids were taking place, so as not to alert potential targets to what might be coming their way. In response, following the ancient idiom of 'not letting the cat out of the bag', residents began to tweet pictures of cats - particularly armed ones.
The Telegraph has a selection of the best tweets (with links to the images). My favorite is this one:
