A court in Brussels found Salah Abdeslam and five others out of ten defendants guilty of terrorist murders for their part in the March 2016 attacks in the Belgian capital that killed 32 people.
Mohammed Abrin (the man with the hat), Osama Attar (allegedly deceased), Osama Krayem, Ali El Hadad Assoufi and Bilal El Makhouchi were found guilty of the same actions.
All of them face life imprisonment, but which will only be announced at the beginning of the school year, as provided for by Belgian law.
Salah Abdeslam and Mohamed Abrini have already been sentenced to life in prison for the November 13, 2015 attacks in France with a sentence handed down on June 29, 2022 (not compatible with Abdeslam and Abrini’s 22 years of security).
We remind you that on March 22, 2016, two attacks were carried out, the first of which killed 16 people at the Brussels-Zaventem airport, and the second at the Maelbeek metro station, in the heart of the European district, also killed 16 people.
The three suicide bombers, Najim Lachraoui and Ibrahim and Khalid El Bakraoui, belonged to the same terrorist cell that went on a rampage in Paris on November 13, 2015, killing 130 and injuring hundreds.
It was the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, a few days earlier in Belgium, that prompted their action.
