Belgian attacks response raises rights concerns: HRW

The rights group said that overly harsh Belgian counterterrorism laws and “heavy-handed” police operations in the past year were undermining efforts to prevent further attacks. Islamic State-linked suicide bombers killed 32 people at Brussels’ airport and metro on March 22, while the same cell was responsible for the November 13, 2015 Paris attacks in which 130 people were killed. “Belgium has worked hard this past year to prevent further attacks, but its law and policy responses have been undermined by their overbroad and sometimes abusive nature,” said Letta Tayler, senior terrorism researcher at Human Rights Watch, who wrote the report.
