2014 Brussels Shooting

Suspect arrested

30 May, 2014

A French national suspected of being connected to Jihadists in Syria is apprehended in Marseille. At the time of his arrest, twenty-nine year old Mehdi Nemmouche is carrying a handgun, a Kalashnikov rifle similar to the weapons used in the attack, and a small video camera which holds a short video showing the two guns and a voiceover in which an unseen man claims responsibility for the killings and expresses regret that the device had failed to record the shootings.

Nemmouche, who has barely said a word since his arrest, was known to have spent much of last year fighting in Syria, but had been left free to travel around Europe.
