Belgium hunts gunman as Jewish community on high alert

Police forensic officers search for evidence on the scene of a shooting near the Jewish Museum in Brussels on May 24, 2014Belgium’s Jewish community was placed on high alert Sunday as police hunted down a gunman who shot dead three people at the Brussels Jewish Museum in an attack blamed on growing anti-Semitism. The first such attack in more than 30 years in Belgium has revived fears of a return of violent anti-Semitism to Europe, with Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu notably lashing out at Europe’s “hypocrisy” in its attitude to the Jewish state. Appealing to the public to help police identify the gunman in a national manhunt, deputy public prosecutor Ine Van Wymersch said he “probably” acted alone and was “well prepared and well armed.” A picture of the suspect is to be released to the public shortly, Van Wymersch said.
