Belgian Denies UK Charge Of Funding Brussels, Paris Attacks Suspect

A Belgian man accused of giving money to a key suspect in the Brussels and Paris terror attacks took the stand in his British trial on Thursday to protest his innocence and condemn ISIS terrorists as "worse than animals".

Zakaria Boufassil, who lives in Birmingham in central England, is accused of handing 3,000 pounds ($3,770, 3,550 euros) in cash to Mohamed Abrini when the latter visited the city in July 2015, with the knowledge that it would be used for terrorism.


Belgian Police Say Brussels Hostage-Taking Over, No One Injured

Belgian police said they detained a man who held about 15 people hostage in a supermarket on Tuesday evening in the Brussels suburb of Forest, adding that nobody was harmed.

Belgian public broadcaster RTBF said the man was armed with a knife. Another state broadcaster, VRT, said the incident might have been related to a failed robbery attempt.

It was not immediately clear if the man had surrendered or been overpowered.

There was no suggestion from police that the hostage-taker had Islamist links. Suicide attacks claimed by ISIS killed 32 people in Brussels in March.
