SC Focus logo

  As the search for a suspected terrorist spread to Brussels, Belgium following the recent attack on Paris, a group of scholars from South Carolina got an experience it never expected – a close-up look at an international manhunt. Dr. Brent Nelson, a political scientist, and his students talk about being in the city where the dragnet took place. The tension in the air, precautions they took, and not caving in to fear were part of their daily routines.
