Man faces ter­ror charges in Bel­gium

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Bel­gian au­thor­i­ties charged a man with al­legedly plot­ting to launch a new at­tack in Bel­gium as Europe re­mained on edge fol­low­ing a wave of ji­hadist blood­shed in France and Ger­many. An in­ves­ti­gat­ing judge charged Nourre­dine H, 33, with at­tempt­ing to com­mit “ter­ror­ist mur­der” and “tak­ing part in the ac­tiv­i­ties of a ter­ror­ist or­gan­i­sa­tion”, the fed­eral pros­e­cu­tor’s of­fice said. He was ar­rested along with his brother Hamza H fol­low­ing raids on July 29 in Bel­gium’s French-speak­ing areas of Mons and Liege, but Mr Hamza was re­leased the next day with­out charge.
