    0

    PARIS: A French-Algerian man suspected of carrying out a deadly shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels is appealing a court decision to extradite him to Belgium. Mehdi Nemmouche, who was detained several days after the attack in which four people died, will now have 15 days to challenge the ruling. A final decision must then be made within 40 days. The court ruled on Thursday that Nemmouche, who spent more than a year fighting alongside radical Islamists in Syria, should be handed over to the Belgian authorities for killings “with a terrorist connotation”. He was arrested on May 30 in the southern city of Marseille in a bus coming from Brussels during a random check by customs officials.
