He was planning to “restart something”
(BRUSSELS) — Belgium’s foreign minister says terror suspect Salah Abdeslam has told investigators he was planning to “restart something” from Brussels.
Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said Sunday that Abdeslam said “he was ready to restart something from Brussels, and it’s maybe the reality.”
Reynders said authorities are taking the claim seriously because “we found a lot of weapons, heavy weapons in the first investigations, and we have seen a new network of people around him in Brussels.”
Abdeslam, captured Friday in a police raid in Brussels, was charged Saturday with “terrorist murder” by Belgian authorities. He is a top suspect in the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris that left 130 people dead.
