Paris gunman was French national – Belgian interior minister
Islamic State militants claimed responsibility for the shooting, in which a French policeman was shot dead, via its Amaq news agency, naming the attacker as Abu Yousif al-Belgiki — “the Belgian” in Arabic.
“The investigation is continuing. What we can confirm, is that the perpetrator was a French national,” Jambon told VRT.
In November 2015, when Paris was rocked by near simultaneous gun-and-bomb attacks on entertainment sites, two of the 10 known perpetrators were Belgian citizens and others lived in Belgium. – Reuters
