France approves extradition for murder suspect at Jewish Museum

A French court has approved the extradition to Belgium of a French man suspected of killing four people in an attack on Brussels’ Jewish Museum.Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, has been held in the southern French city of Marseille since the end of May.It is understood he only agreed to being extradited provided Belgium does not send him to Israel, given that two of the victims were Israeli.Nemmouche’s lawyer, Apolin Pepiezep, said: “He will most likely appeal the decision. He has not received a guarantee from Belgium that he would not be extradited to a third country.”An Israeli couple, a French woman were killed in the attack on 24 May. A Belgian man was also shot and later died of his injuries.Prosecutors say Nemmouche was a repeat offender in France and spent most of last year in Syria fighting with Islamist rebels.
