Suspected Brussels Police Killer Had Hundreds of Islamic Books At Residence

The main suspect in an alleged terrorist attack that left one police officer dead and another injured last week in Brussels is said to have been in possession of hundreds of Islamic books.

Yassine Mahi, the man arrested for the killing of 29-year-old police officer Thomas M. in the Brussels area of Schaerbeek last Thursday, is said to have possessed hundreds of Islamic books in his home in the Evere area of the Belgian capital.

It is unclear whether or not the books contain extremist material as police have employed an expert to review the books and other documents but add to reports that the alleged Islamic extremist had yelled “Allahu Akbar” during the attack on the two officers, broadcaster RTL reports.

Prior to last week’s attack, Mahi is said to have gone to a local police station and stated that he wanted to carry out an attack but was sent to a physiatric hospital and was then released after leaving of his own accord.
