Museum attack suspect 'took Syria hostages '

Former hostage alleges Mehdi Nemmouche, accused of attacking a Jewish museum in Belgium, held him captive in Syria.

    A French journalist held hostage in Syria has said one his captors was a man suspected of attacking a Jewish museum in Brussels.

    Nicolas Henin, who was released in April after being held for 10 months by Islamic State group-linked fighters, said Mehdi Nemmouche was known to mistreat hostages.
