Said Al Nasr



Said Al Nasr ( Said al-Nasser , Nassar Saeed ) was a Syrian Palestinian known for carrying out the 28th of July 1980 Antwerp summer camp attack , in which he attacked a group of 40 Jewish children waiting for their families for a bus to take them to summer camp with hand grenades. One boy was killed and eight others were seriously wounded.

Background

Al Nasr was born in 1955. He was convicted in Belgium in 1980, for throwing two hand grenades into a group of Jewish children waiting for a bus in Antwerp on July 27, 1980. [1] [2] He was carrying a Moroccan passport at the time of his arrest. [3]

In the Silco incident , the Belgiam government “traded” the jailed Said Al Nasr for members of the Houtekins-Kets family in 1990, a Belgian-French family kidnapped in Libya -a demand of the Abu Nidal militant group. [4] [5]
