Jewish museum attack suspect to be sent to Belgium
A French court has ordered the man suspected of killing four people at the Brussels Jewish Museum to be extradited to Belgium.

 

The Versailles court decided Thursday that Mehdi Nemmouche should be handed over to Belgian authorities who are investigating last month's museum attack.

 

Nemmouche, 29, had fought in Syria and was arrested carrying weapons resembling those used in the  killings.

 

His lawyer, Apolin Pepiezep, said they would appeal the extradition decision, arguing that the case should be handled in France because Nemmouche is a citizen and was arrested in France. (AP)
