Murder at Belgian Jewish museum ‘by European-looking man’

This video is called Three dead after shooter opens fire at Brussels’ Jewish Museum.

A horrible crime this afternoon in Brussels, Belgium. In the street where the Jewish Museum is, a man stepped out of a car, opened fire, and killed three people (four, according to other sources).

Was this an anti-Semitic murder by an extreme Right winger, like in the USA recently? It is too early to be sure about the murderer and his motives.

According to the Belgian police, quoted in daily De Morgen, and on Dutch site The Post online, the murderer was ‘a European man with dark clothes on’.

Whatever the motives, this is a terrible crime. My condolences to all families and friends of the people killed and wounded.
