The trial of RFI's Hausa-language correspondent in Cameroon, Ahmed Abba, has been postponed for a month, by which date he will have spent 17 months in prison, because experts had failed to provide a report on the contents of his computers and mobile phone at today's hearing. France Médias Monde again called for his release and the dismissal of complicity with terrorism charges.
A family lights candles for th victims at the Brussels Jewish Museum
The fourth person to die after a gunman opened fire on the Jewish Museum in Brussels was to be buried in a Muslim cemetery in Morocco.
Alexandre Strens, whose mother is Jewish and father a Muslim Berber, was to be buried near his grandparents’ graves in the cemetery in Taza, north-east Morocco, on Tuesday afternoon, the museum’s president Philippe Blondin told Belgian media.
Strens, who was raised in the Jewish faith by his mother, was employed in the museum’s PR department and was working in reception on the day of the killings.
He died on Friday, having been brain-dead since being shot.
Both parents’ families agreed that he should be buried in Morocco.
“Alexandre’s family is a magnificent family, integrated and of exceptional quality,” Blondin said. “The mum raised her seven children on her own.”
Three other people were killed in the attack, Israeli tourists Emanuel and Miriam Riva and 66-year-old voluntary worker Dominique Sabrier.
