An attack on a Brussels Jewish Museum claimed a fourth victim Sunday as Belgian police carried out a manhunt for the gunman, releasing chilling video footage of the shooting.An Israeli tourist couple and two museum staff -- a French woman and a Belgian man -- died from gunshots to the face and neck after a man fired inside the museum on Saturday afternoon before escaping later on foot.The first such attack in more than 30 years in Belgium has revived fears of a return of anti-Semitism to Europe, with Israeli premier Benjamin Netanyahu lashing out at Europe's "hypocrisy" in its attitude to the Jewish state.Some 40,000 Jews live in Belgium, roughly half in Brussels and the remainder in the port city of Antwerp.There was no security at the museum leading up to the attack and Jewish community leaders said there had been no threats.Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders saw two bodies at the entrance and said the two other victims had been shot further inside the museum.Saturday's attack took place two years after the killing of four Jews, including three children, in the French city of Toulouse.
