Last Saturday an unknown gunman was transported by an accomplice to the Jewish Museum in Brussels. He left the car, entered the building, and killed three people. The shooter and the driver of the vehicle were both able to escape the scene of the crime. Shortly afterwards a suspect was arrested, but was later released.
Yesterday another suspect was arrested in connection with a different case. Although he is believed to be a mujahid who traveled to Syria to fight in the jihad, he too has been released for lack of evidence.
Jewish Museum shooting suspect released
The man who was arrested on Tuesday after the shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels has been released again.
The man was arrested yesterday by the federal prosecutor in another terrorism case. In the case of the attack on the Jewish Museum, the investigators are keeping all avenues open and their inquiries will include checking whether any clues can be found in existing cases.
The man who was arrested yesterday is said to have been a fighter in Syria. During his interrogation, in addition to the offenses for which he was arrested, the attack at the Jewish Museum was also considered because there are certain similarities between his profile and that of the perpetrator.
According to the federal prosecutor, the man could not be linked to Saturday’s events.
In the Jewish Museum last Saturday three people were killed and one seriously injured in a shooting. According to the prosecutor this was a terrorist attack.
