Mehdi Nemmouche, the chief suspect in the deadly 2014 shooting at the Jewish Museum of Belgium, can be extradited to France to face terrorism charges, Belgium's federal prosecutors ruled Thursday.

Frenchman Nemmouche is accused of carrying out the May 24, 2014, shooting at the Jewish museum in Brussels, in which an Israeli couple, a French woman and a Belgian man were killed.

In their decision on Thursday, Belgian prosecutors said Nemmouche would be extradited to France once Belgium "no longer needs him".

Nemmouche was initially extradited to Belgium from France after his arrest in the southern French city of Marseille, six days after the shooting.

But French prosecutors subsequently filed a European arrest warrant to have him prosecuted in France on charges of terrorism and kidnapping.

They are investigating allegations that Nemmouche was part of an islamist group that held four French journalists hostage in Syria in 2014.
