Brussels Attacks: Nuclear Officer Found Dead, Security Pass Stolen
Belgium is on high alert after a security officer for a nuclear plant was found dead with his work pass stolen.
The concerning development, which occurred on Thursday but was only reported today byDernière Heure, comes after concerns the Brussels bombers had been plotting to create a radioactive “dirty bomb” that would scatter nuclear material in a crowded public place.
The security officer was reportedly shot dead as he walked his dog in the city of Charleroi. Authorities quickly cancelled his pass.
While the motive for the murder remains unknown, police are looking into the theory he was killed to steal his pass and gain access to a nuclear facility.
