A security officer at a nuclear site was killed in the Belgian city of Charleroi two days after the terror attacks in Brussels, local newspaper Derniere Heure reported, citing police sources. The paper added that the man’s security pass was stolen.
The guard, identified as Didier Prospero, was walking his dog when he was shot dead in the early evening on Thursday, according to Russia Today.
His security pass was stolen, which alerted the investigators since the man was a member of a nuclear power plant staff.
They haven’t found links to terror yet but on Thursday, authorities reported that Brussels suicide bombers Khalid and Ibrahim El Bakraoui were planning attacks on Belgian nuclear power stations but that the arrest of Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam had accelerated the plans of the terrorists.
The brothers reportedly planted a hidden camera in front of the home of the director of the Belgian nuclear research program. The footage with “dozens of hours” of the movements of Belgium’s nuclear boss was seized during an anti-terrorist raid in the apartment of another suspect belonging to the same terror cell, Mohammed Bakkali.
