Said Al Nasr
Said Al Nasr (alt. Said al-Nasser; Nassar Saeed) was a Syrian Palestinian known for carrying out the 28 July 1980 Antwerp summer camp attack, in which he attacked a group of 40 Jewish children waiting with their families for a bus to take them to summer camp with hand grenades. One boy was killed and eight others were seriously wounded.
Al Nasr was born in 1955. He was convicted in Belgium in 1980, for throwing two hand grenades into a group of Jewish children waiting for a bus in Antwerp on July 27, 1980. He was carrying a Moroccan passport at the time of his arrest.
In the Silco incident, the Belgiam government "traded" the jailed Said Al Nasr for members of the family Houtekins-Kets in 1990, a Belgian-French family kidnapped in Libya—a demand of the Abu Nidal militant group.
