    According to La Libre, three people died and another was seriously injured during the shootout Saturday, around 3:50 pm local time, at the Sablon in Brussels. According to the report, twelve people suffered shocked and a fourth victim is in critical condition; one person was also reported in custody - however the report was not confirmed.

    Two senior Belgium minister were in the area, Foreign Minister Didier Reynders and Interior Minister Joëlle Milquet. According to the latter, "it is likely that this is an anti-Semitic attack."

    Julien Klener, who heads the Consistoire Central Israèlite de Belgique, the official Jewish umbrella organization representing Judaism and local Jewish communities in the country, told media that "there have been recent threats to the Jewish Museum."

    "This is a terrorist act, the assassin entered deliberately in a Jewish museum," President of the Belgian League Against Antisemitism (LBCA) Joel Rubinfeld told the AFP.

    "He killed three people, wounded one, with a car waiting nearby," added Rubinfeld, claiming that as of late there has been a rise in anti-Semitic rhetoric, and according to him, such an event "is the inevitable result of a climate which distils hatred."

    A spokesman for the Brussels fire brigade said the shooter drove up to the museum, went inside and fired shots.

    "According to the information we have at the moment, it was a solitary shooter and it seems to have happened inside the museum," Pierre Meys, Brussels fire brigade spokesman, told French channel BFM TV.

    According to the La Libre report, a man drew up to the museum in an Audi, exited the car and opened fire on bypasses. He then reportedly reentered the car and fled the scene.

    The report further claimed that two women and one man were killed in the attack, the identity of the victims were confirmed by the Brussels police commander Guido Van Wymersch.

    "I heard the shots , I ran and I saw the body on the ground," Minister Reynders reportedly told La Libre. Reynders tweeted that he was "Shocked by the killings at the Jewish Museum, I think of the victims I saw on site and their families."

    Belgium Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo was also reportedly "very shocked".

    A witness, Alain Sobotik, told AFP that he saw "two bodies" in the lobby of the museum. "There was a young woman with blood on her head. She was still holding a folder in her hands, it was like a tourist," said the witness, reached by telephone.

    We don't know. People are guessing it is an anti-Semitic attack. We should wait for confirmation.

    It's obvious that some Buddhist or Jain would not be behind this anti-Semitic attack.

    But lets see to just confirm.

    Seems like the guy knew there might be some security cams installed.

    Unlike facemasks wearing cap doesn't raise eyebrows in general and it hides some of the face part from the cams.Usually CCTV's are installed at a height of 8+ feet so if someone wears a cap it easily hides the face partially.Also CCTV's in this example doesn't seems to provide high quality image.

    This is a tragedy, but its always funny to me as to why these cameras for monitoring people are placed at the ceiling level where they take a downward looking view.

    Its so easy to hide your face with a downward facing camera - all you have to do is put on a hat or cap.

    4th Victim Confirmed Dead in Brussels Jewish Museum killings

    [​IMG]

    A fourth victim was pronounced dead Sunday and Belgium’s Jewish community was placed on high alert as police hunted down a gunman who opened fire at the Brussels Jewish Museum in an attack blamed on growing anti-Semitism.

    An Israeli tourist couple and a French woman died from gunshots to the face and neck after a man apparently acting alone fired two successive rounds into the museum on Saturday afternoon before escaping minutes later on foot.

    A fourth victim, a Belgian who did volunteer work for the museum, was critically injured and later pronounced dead.

    Joel Rubinfeld, head of the Belgian League against Anti-Semitism, told AFP that the fourth victim, who was in his early 20s and worked as a receptionist at the museum, died in the afternoon.

    The first such attack in more than 30 years in Belgium has revived fears of a return of violent anti-Semitism to Europe, with Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu notably lashing out at Europe’s “hypocrisy” in its attitude to the Jewish state.

    Appealing to the public to help police identify the gunman in a national manhunt, deputy public prosecutor Ine Van Wymersch said he “probably” acted alone and was “well prepared and well armed.”

    She added that as there was no claim “I cannot confirm that it is a terrorist or anti-Semitic act” but “all leads remain open.”

    Police released security camera video of the attack.

    French President Francois Hollande, who along with Netanyahu had a phone conversation with the Belgian premier, said he had no doubt about the “anti-Semitic character” of the attack.

    Netanyahu, welcoming Pope Francis in the Holy Land, hailed the pontiff for his “determined stance against anti-Semitism, especially in light of the growing hatred of Jews that we are witness to in these days.”

    The attack in the busy heart of Brussels, minutes away from a packed streetside jazz festival, came as the country headed into a crucial general election held alongside a vote for the European parliament.

    “An election day is usually a celebration of democracy. Today it is clouded,” said Belgium’s Prime Minister Elio Di Rupo. “It is on everyone’s mind.”

    “In Belgium we are not accustomed to such acts of barbarity.”

    Some 40,000 Jews live in Belgium, roughly half in Brussels and the remainder in the port city of Antwerp.

    This is certainly a terrorist operation - look at how calm this guy was. Like a trained pro.

    Suspected gunman held for
    Jewish Museum shooting


    PARIS: A Frenchman with suspected ties to Islamic radicals in Syria has been arrested over last week's fatal shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, investigation sources told AFP on Sunday. The suspected gunman, 29-year- old Mehdi Nemmouche, was arrested on Friday in the southern French city of Marseille in possession of a Kalashnikov rifle and a handgun similar to the ones used in the attack on May 24, the sources said. He has been detained on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in connection with a terrorist enterprise, a judicial source said. The shooting by a lone gunman killed three people outright - an Israeli couple and a Frenchwoman, while the fourth victim, a 24- year-old Belgian man, was left clinically dead. Authorities had released chilling security camera footage of the gunman, wearing a cap and sunglasses, walking into the museum, removing an automatic rifle from a bag and shooting through a door before making an exit. Customs officials detained Nemmouche at Marseille's coach station on board a bus arriving from Amsterdam via Brussels. According to sources close to the investigation, he was carrying a Kalashnikov automatic rifle and a gun with ammunition in his luggage, as well as a miniature video camera. Originally from Roubaix in northern France, he is believed to have travelled to join Islamist fighters in Syria in 2013, and was known to the French domestic intelligence agency DGSI, the source said. He is being questioned by the DGSI who can hold him for up to 96 hours, until Tuesday, or 144 hours, to Thursday, if investigators invoke an imminent terrorist threat.
