A French citizen named Nicolas Henin was kidnapped and held hostage last year by Syrian mujahideen. After his release, he identified Mehdi Nemmouche as one of his Syrian captors. Mr. Nemmouche is the primary suspect in the Jewish Museum murders in Brussels on May 24 of this year. Four people were shot to death in that attack.

|00:12||for actions he was accused of in Brussels, I was confronted|
|00:16||with a number of audio-visual documents that permitted me|
|00:20||to identify him formally. Mehdi Nemmouche mistreated me|
|00:24||himself. I don’t know of other Western hostages|
|00:28||whom he has ill-treated. However, I could|
|00:32||hear him torture Syrian prisoners|
|00:36||in this facility where we were. After smashing in my face|
|00:40||he showed me his gloves, of which he was very proud, asking me,|
|00:44||“Have you seen these motorcycle gloves? I bought them just for you,|
|00:48||to bash in your face, did you like them?”|
