(BELGIUM) LATEST: Two brothers who carried out the devastating Belgium suicide bomb attacks confessed to shooting dead a 76-year-old man at random to see what killing was like, their co-conspirators claim #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Mar.15: Ibrahim and Khalid El-Bakraoui allegedly killed Paul-André Vanderperren, 76, at random in 2014 – two years before carrying out two separate bomb attacks in Brussels killing 31.

Belgium: ‘Brothers murdered 76-year-old man at random before carrying out jihad massacres that killed 31 after three devastating suicide bombs went off on March 22, 2016 – injuring hundreds of people’

“Islamist brothers ‘shot dead a 76-year-old man at random to see what killing was like’ before carrying out Belgium suicide bomb attacks,” by Jemma Carr, MailOnline, March 12, 2021 (thanks to Mary):

At 8am, two bombs were detonated at Zaventem Airport by Ibrahim and co-conspirator Najim Laachraoui, causing the deaths of 14 people near the check-in desks.

More than an hour later, at 9.19am, a third bomb was detonated at Maalbeek Metro station by Khalid, killing another 20 people.

A third airport attacker – whose device failed to go off – so-called ‘man in the hat’ Mohamed Abrini was arrested in Brussels nearly a month after the attacks.

The El-Bakraoui brothers told their fellow attackers that they shot dead Mr Vanderperren ahead of the bombings to ‘test what it was like to kill someone’.

Mr Vanderperren was killed in the Jette municipality of Brussels and his case has never been solved.

He had watched football club Anderlecht play on television in a cafe and was heading home when he was shot.

Police issued an appeal for witnesses in 2018, but the case was closed last year.

But two surviving attackers of the Belgium suicide bomb atrocity – ‘man in the hat’ Abrini and another assailant, Osama Krayem – claim Ibrahim and Khalid said they were responsible for Mr Vanderperren’s death.

Abrini and Krayem – who was caught with Khalid on CCTV moments before he set off the bomb – are facing trial next year.

Krayem is said to have told interviewing police officers in 2016 that ‘Khalid told me he and Ibrahim had shot someone dead on the street’, Flemish newspaper De Morgan reports.

Two years later, Krayem added: ‘Khalid explained it was an elderly person and that they had wanted to test what it was like to kill someone.’…
