Brussels Jewish Museum attacker gets life sentence

A Belgium court on Monday sentenced a French jihadist to life in prison for murdering four people at Brussel’s Jewish Museum in 2014.

Mehdi Nemmouche, 33, was found guilty earlier this month of committing “four terrorist murders” when he gunned down an Israeli couple and two museum workers in cold blood in less than 90 seconds on May 24, 2014.

“Mr. Nemmouche, you are just a coward, you kill people by shooting them from behind, you kill old women by shooting them with an assault rifle, you kill because it gives you pleasure to kill,” prosecutor Yves Moreau said before 12 jurors convened to consider the sentencing.
