Frenchman convicted over deadly attack at Brussels Jewish museum
BRUSSELS — Jurors found Frenchman Mehdi Nemmouche guilty of murdering four people at Brussels’ Jewish museum, the presiding judge announces. The attack was the first carried out in Europe by a Syria jihad veteran.
The 12 jurors also found Nacer Bendrer, accused of supplying him with the weapons, to be the “co-author” of the May 2014 anti-Semitic killings, the judge says following a two-month trial in Brussels.
