Brussels Jewish Museum Reopens After Killings

September 10, 2014

The Associated Press, September 10, 2014

BRUSSELS (AP) — The Jewish Museum of Belgium, where four people were slain in May by an intruder with a Kalashnikov, is reopening this weekend for the first time since the killings.

The armed assault in a busy and upscale district of Brussels fueled fears of rising anti-Semitism and violent Islamic extremism in Europe.

Cige Norbert, secretary general of the museum, said Tuesday the decision to reopen effective Sunday is meant as a statement.

He said it "proves that those who tried to put us to silence, well, that objective has failed."

Mehdi Nemmouche, a 29-year-old French national who is believed to have links with radical Islamists and have fought in Syria, was arrested in France in connection with the shooting, and extradited to Belgium in July.
