Jewish Museum suspect had 'visited Syria in 2013'

French media have reported that the man arrested over the Jewish Museum shootings in Brussels, was suspected of having visited jihadist groups in Syria in 2013.

Joel Rubinfeld, head of the Belgian League against Antisemitism, told of their concerns over the Syrian visit:

This is a relief.

But this is also worrying us ... it is is crucial that countries who have citizens who have gone to Syria, take all necessary measures to make sure this does not happen again.
