Islamic State: the federal Prosecutor’s Office investigates whether a Belgian is implicated in the beheadings
Tuesday, 18 November 2014
On Tuesday, the federal Prosecutor’s Office confirmed they are investigating whether a man from Vilvorde is implicated in the beheadings shown in a new video from the terrorist organization Islamic State (IS). According to Het Laaste Nieuws, which quotes the investigators, one of the men looks very like a 28 year old Belgian militant. The man from Vilvorde might be part of a group of around 20 unmasked IS militants that appear in a video talking of the beheading of the American Peter Kassig.
The militant, currently in Syria, is wanted for not appearing in the Sharia4Belgium trial in front of the Antwerp Correctional Tribunal. On his Facebook page, he says he is staying in Dabiq, north of Alep, where the video was filmed.
