BRUSSELS, November 15. (ITAR-TASS) – Young man, who planned to carry out a terrorist attack targeting the Flemish television channel VRT was detained in the city of Sint-Niklaas, located in Flemish province of East Flanders. Operatives seized the suspect in one the city’s cafes where he was attempting to recruit accomplices.
On his social network page the alleged terrorist has posted a manifest, outlining his plans for a revolution in Belgium. The local media has already compared him with the infamous Anders Breivik, who detonated a bomb in downtown Oslo, and then carried out a massacre at a student camp of the Workers' Youth League on the island of Utøya. Breivik’s actions resulted in 77 deaths; over 150 people were injured.
The Belgian prosecution is taking this case very seriously and believe that the detained 23-year-old terrorist is not of sound mind. He has placed in the psychiatric ward of a prison in Bruges, where he will be examined by a medical commission. The expert team will pass their judgment on the suspect’s mental health, after which judicial proceedings will commence.
