Brussels court orders attackers to pay compensation to victims of Jewish museum attack

BRUSSELS, Two men convicted of the 2014 attack on the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Mehdi Nemmouche and Nacer Bendrer, have been ordered by a court in Brussels Tuesday to pay the victims of the attack 985,000 euro (USD 1.09 million) compensation.

The Belgian news portal, VRT, reported today that last March Nemmouche was sentenced to life imprisonment for the attack in which four people were killed. His accomplice Bendrer was given a 15-year prison sentence.

The four people killed were an Israeli couple and two museum employees. They were all shot by Nemmouche. Bendrer provided Nemmouche with the weapons used in the attack, it noted.
