    The FBI questions a Belgian being held in Morocco


    Four FBI agents have questioned a Belgian expat in Bouraïz prison in Fès, Morocco. They want information on the how jihadist recruitment networks in Europe operate.  In December 2007, the suspect left for the Al-Qaida training camps in Pakistan, but the Taliban refused to take Belgian volunteers. He therefore decided to return to Belgium, but found himself stuck in Syria, where he was arrested in 2011. Instead of being extradited to Belgium, he was sent to Morocco, where he was also wanted for terrorism. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
