There’re many examples of the back & forth between France & Belgium when it comes to terror.
The Belgian Federal Prosecutor’s Office had announced that investigators, who’d been looking into last month’s arrest of a man supposedly plotting an outbreak in France, have imprisoned and indicted a 33-year-old man for being part of terror group.
It is not clear what exactly this man supposedly did, or even who he is. He is identified only as a Belgian national with initials Y.A. in prosecutor’s news release.
His case is also connected with that of Reda Kriket, a French citizen charged on charges of criminal conspiracy in order to commit terrorism act, manufacturing of explosives and weapon possession.
The French police had took in custody Kriket on 24th March in Boulogne-Billancourt then raided an apartment not far away in Argenteuil, finding a large weapons cache & bomb-making materials, French said Prosecutor Francois Molins.
Authorities have not given any indication that Kriket or Y.A. had any direct involvement bombings in Brussels. Those attacks at the city’s airport & on its subway system killed over 30 people & had injured over 298, acc. To the Belgian Minister of Health Maggie De Block.
Nor is any connection publicly known between these 2 men & the terror that struck Paris last Nov, that left over 129 dead & hundreds more injured.
