Police have arrested a man in Marseille, France, who is suspected of killing three people last week in the Jewish Museum in Brussels, Belgium, Belgian federal magistrate Wenke Roggen said Sunday.
Two who died were Israelis, a couple in their 50s from Tel Aviv, Israel’s Foreign Ministry has said. The third victim was a French woman.

Images from the museum in Brussels showed the gunman behind Saturday’s deadly attack approaching the building, opening fire, and walking away.
He used an AK-47 assault rifle to carry out the shooting, police have said.
Photographs and video released by Belgian police showed the man wearing a cap and blue shirt, carrying two bags over his shoulder. The images do not show his face clearly.
The shooter left on foot after the attack and headed toward a different part of downtown Brussels before he disappeared, according to police.
Terrorism has not been ruled out, Van Wymersch said Monday.
