France: Muslim Jihadist arrested for Brussels Museum attack

A Frenchman has been arrested in Marseille over a shooting at the Jewish Museum in Brussels that left four people dead, reports say. 
Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, is being held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder in connection with a terrorist enterprise, sources told AFP. 
He was reportedly carrying a Kalashnikov rifle and a handgun similar to the ones used in the May 24 attack. 
Security was tightened at Jewish sites across Belgium following the killings. 
Mr Nemmouche, who is believed to be from the northern French town of Roubaix, is also suspected of having links to Islamists militants fighting in Syria.
