There are important links between the Jihadi networks in Barcelona and Belgium, former French anti-terrorist judge Marc Trévidic said on Friday on the French radio station, Europe 1. “There are important links between the Jihadists in Barcelona and the Belgian networks, simply because Belgium has a terrorist structure that is also Moroccan,” Trévidic said, without indicating specific elements about Thursday’s attacks in the Spanish towns of Barcelona and Cambrils.
“There are links because it’s the extremist Moroccan community,” he said. “The links are historic. There have been links between the Moroccan networks in Belgium and Spain since the 1990s”
