A video posted on Twitter claims to show a crowd of people in a Lidl supermarket in Molenbeek. The neighbourhood in Brussels is known for being home to four of the men behind the 2015 Paris terror attacks. However, the video was actually filmed in Algeria during a food shortage and the crowd was due to a nationwide food shortage earlier this year.
