Muslims in Belgium ‘dance in the street’ following terrorist attacks, claims Interior Minister


A “significant” number of Belgian Muslim population celebrate terrorist attacks, the country’s Interior Minister has claimed.

Speaking to the Flemish-language newspaper De Standaard, Jan Jambon did not specifically refer to the attacks on Brussels Airport and a metro station last month which left 32 people dead but said there is a “cancer” of extremism running through Belgian society that the government is struggling to fight.

He accused Muslim residents of the Brussels suburb of Molenbeek of attacking police during an operation last month to arrest Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.
