A suspect in the Brussels Jewish Museum shooting is to be extradited back to France, according to France 24.

In 2014 a gunman opened fire in the museum with a Kalashnikov rifle, killing four people.

Reports claimed the gunman was French national Mehdi Nemmouche, and was believed to have fought in Syria for a year in 2013.

He was extradited to Belgium in July 2014 after the attack in May.

Some claim this attack was the first in Europe to be linked to Islamic State.
