On Monday, Belgium will commemorate the victims of the Islamist attacks in Brussels on March 22, 2016. In the attacks five years ago at Brussels-Zaventem Airport and in the Brussels subway, 32 people were killed and 340 others were injured.
The jihadist militia “Islamic State” (IS) has claimed responsibility for the attacks. A lawsuit is currently pending between 700 plaintiffs, the Belgian state and insurers. It is expected to decide who is responsible for compensation at the end of 2022.
