However, it also follows the discovery in that a senior researcher at a Belgian center which produces a significant portion of the world’s supply of radioisotopes had been spied upon by a terror cell.

Last month it emerged the film was recorded by brothers Khalid and Ibrahim El Bakraoui, who were among the bombers responsible for the March terror attacks in Brussels.
