“Since his arrival, he has been interrogated by the counter-terrorism unit of the federal judiciary police of Brussels, as well as by the investigating judge,” the Belgian federal prosecutor’s office said, according to DPA.

“He has been charged with murder in a terrorist context and an arrest warrant has been delivered on his behalf,” the office added.

Nemmouche, a 29-year-old dual French-Algerian national, has also allegedly fought with jihadist terror groups in Syria.
