The Frenchman arrested on suspicion of last week’s Jewish Museum shooting in Brussels planned to film the attacks, reminiscent of the gunman, who killed four people at a Jewish school in Toulouse in 2012, a television report said.

According to BFMTV, the man was found in possession of a small, light camera similar to the one Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah wore strapped to his body during his shooting sprees.

The camera contained footage of the suspect, identified by French media as 29-year-old Mehdi Nemmouche, talking about last week’s attack in Brussels, which killed three people and left another critically injured.

“It’s a pity my camera didn’t work,” he was reported by BFMTV as saying in the footage.
