“The young woman had blood on her head. She was still holding a leaflet in her hand, she looked like a tourist,” he said.
Belgian Minister of Foreign Affairs Didier Reynders saw the two corpses at the entrance and said the two other people had been shot further inside the museum. He said he had been strolling nearby when he saw people fleeing and heard shots and rushed to help.
When he saw “bodies on the ground in pools of blood” he called the 112 emergency number and rounded up eyewitnesses. While stopping short of calling it an anti-Semitic act, Reynders said “evidently one thinks of that.”
