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.
A security guard, who was walking his dog, was shot dead in the early evening on Thursday, the paper said.
His security pass was stolen, which alerted the investigators since the man was a member of a nuclear power plant staff.
Earlier Thursday, DH reported that Brussels suicide bombers Khalid and Ibrahim El Bakraoui were planning attacks on Belgian nuclear power stations and that the arrest of Paris attacker Salah Abdeslam had accelerated the plans of the terrorists.
Charleroi is located 50 km from the Belgian capital.
