Brussels, August 22, 2016
Belgian police have detained a young man who called for the killing of Christians. The youth will face criminal charges reports RIA-Novosti with reference to the RTL French television and radio broadcasting company.
Early in August a video appeared on the internet in which a young man was strolling about the streets of Verviers, a Walloon city in eastern Belgium, reciting a Muslim prayer in Arabic which contained death threats against Christians. The culprit has been identified: seventeen-year-old Sohaid, son of Imam Alami from a suburb of Verviers who had earlier faced extradition for preaching Salafism (a strictly orthodox Sunni Muslim movement). In the judgment of the authorities, by his sermons this imam radicalized young people of the Muslim community.
According to RTL, Sohaid and his parents were detained following their return from Morocco on Sunday.
