The man suspected of being the accomplice of Abdesalem Lassoued, the perpetrator of the October 16 attack in Brussels, has been charged with murder and attempted murder in a terrorist context. La Dernière Heure reports this.
The man in question, 43-year-old Tunisian Lamjed K., was arrested on October 25 during a house search in Tervuren. According to the public prosecutor’s office, the man is said to have had frequent contact with the shot terrorist and therefore he could be linked to the attack, according to the federal public prosecutor’s office. Particularly objectionable is that the man exchanged photos of an AR-15, a war rifle, with Lassoued before the attack. Lassoued committed his attack with that type of weapon.
