Suspect in Brussels Attack Served Battle Tour in Syria

Mehdi Nemmouche, the 29 year old French national who was arrested Sunday in connection with the May 24th killing spree at a Jewish museum in Brussels, is a known Islamic radical who is believed to have spent time in Syria fighting on behalf of Islamist groups in 2013.

According to the BBC, Nemmouche hails from the northern town of Roubaix. He was arrested at a train station in Marseille as he was getting off a coach during a random drugs search. The train had been travelling from Amsterdam via Brussels.

The suspect is a native of Roubaix, in northern France. The BBC said that at the time of the arrest in the southern French city of Marseille he was in possession of a Kalashnikov rifle and a handgun similar to the ones used in the museum attack. Police also said the weapons had been used recently.

From 2007-2007 Nemmouche served a prison service for armed robbery. Now, he will be charged with four counts of murder and multiple counts of attempted murder. The suspect is currently in custody of anti-terrorist investigators and could be held at least through Tuesday under French counter-terrorism law.
