The identity of all six people thought to have been killed by terrorist suspect Abdelkader Belliraj has now been established.

Usually Belliraj acted on his own, preferring to use a 7.65 mm revolver.

Sometimes he was assisted by Bekti, an accomplice who is now also under arrest in Morocco.

The Moroccan authorities have established that it was Belliraj who gave the orders. He made his confession after he was confronted with evidence provided by other accomplices.

In his confession he admitted killing the imam and the librarian of the grand mosque in Brussels in 1989.

Later he murdered Dr Joseph Wybran, the president of Jewish organisations in Belgium as well as the odd jobs man at the Saudi embassy in Brussels.

Raoul Schouppe, a Jewish greengrocer who worked in the neighbourhood of the Brussels South station was also killed.

It was in this area that Belliraj met his sixth victim in a café, a 53-year-old gay man.

He says he killed him because the man made sexual advances.

He later dumped the body in Braine-le-chateau in Walloon Brabant.

Investigators are now compiling information about all the killings. They will then travel to Morocco.

It is possible that Belliraj will be tried there for the killings committed in Belgium.
