Brussels museum shooter to be extradited to Belgium

(JNS.org) A French court has ordered that Mehdi Nemmouche – the suspected shooter at the Brussels Jewish museum last month – be extradited to Belgium, where he would be tried on murder charges, the BBC reported. The May 24 shooting left four victims dead, including an Israeli couple. According to French authorities, the 29-year-old French-Algerian terrorism suspect was arrested and found to be in possession of a Kalashnikov automatic rifle that was wrapped in the flag of the terror group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), as well as a handgun. Prosecutors say Nemmouche spent a year in Syria fighting with jihadists before returning to Europe in March.
