Syrian man suspected of Islamic State beheadings detained in Hungary

Budapest, Hungary – Hungarian authorities have detained and questioned a Syrian man accused of taking part in beheadings in Syria as a member of the so-called Islamic State, according to a statement released earlier today by Budapest prosecutors. The 27-year-old man, not identified in the statement, had already been awaiting deportation to Greece where he is believed to have refugee status.

Initially arrested with forged documents in December at Budapest’s Ferenc Liszt International Airport, his connection with the so-called Islamic State was discovered later on by Eurojust, the European agency that oversees judicial co-operation in crime investigations, working with Belgian and Hungarian authorities.

The man is accused of executing about 20 people in 2016 in the western Syrian city of Homs, all family members of a person who refused to join the terror organisation. He is now facing charges of terrorist activities, reports Hungary Today.
