The attack is suspected to be the work of a 29-year-old Frenchman, Mehdi Nemmouche, who has spent more than a year fighting with radical jihadists in Syria and who was detained days after the shooting. It was the first such attack in Brussels in three decades, raising fears across Europe of a resurgence of anti-Semitic violence and of terror attacks from foreign fighters returning from Syria.
