According to reports that one of the Islamic State suicide bombers who killed 32 people in Brussels airport last month was said to have been worked as a cleaner at the European Parliament previously.
Although it was not officially confirmed which of the men involved in the attacks worked there, it has been reported that it was Belgian Najim Laachraoui, 25, one of the airport suitcase bombers.
The revelation comes just a week after police at Brussels airport claimed at least 50 Islamic State supporters are working there as baggage handlers, cleaners and catering staff.
“For a month in both 2009 and 2010, one of the suicide bombers worked as a cleaner in the parliament as a student summer job” an official said.
The man had been employed through a cleaning company contracted by the European Parliament at the time.
But he insisted that the man did not have a criminal record at the time as the firm had submitted proof of this to the parliament as required under the terms of their contract.
