A heavily armed anti-lockdown extremist dubbed the "Belgian Rambo" drew up a 10-strong hit list before going on the run in Belgium , reports say.
Far-right terrorist Corporal Jurgen Conings has evaded capture from police and special forces during a nationwide manhunt for the last two weeks.
Investigators have now increased security for ten people who are believed to have been named in a "hit list" he drew up before he emptied his bank account and disappeared, the Telegraph reports.
Mr Conings took a huge arsenal of heavy weapons, including four anti-tank rocket launchers from a barracks when he went missing.
In letters, he said he no longer wanted to live in a society ruled by “politicians and virologists” and wanted to join the "resistance".
Reports say his alleged 'hit list' targets include his ex-wife, her lawyer, a leading coronavirus expert, the country’s defence minister.
The 46-year-old reportedly withdrew € 3,000 – everything in his account – before abandoning his car on May 18 at a national park in Limburg, which is close to the Dutch border.
The launchers were found in the boot but there was no sign of Mr Conings, a former sniper who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and has voiced a hatred of lockdowns and is anti-vaccination.
Marc Van Ranst, one of Belgium’s most famous Covid experts, was taken to a police safehouse a fortnight ago after Mr Conings left with the huge arsenal of weapons.

A lawyer involved in his divorce and his ex-wife are also both under police protection, the Het Laatste Nieuws newspaper reported.
Other people who have been given extra security include senior figures in the Belgian military, which disciplined Mr Conings for his political views last year, and Ludivine Dedonder, Belgium’s defence minister.
Belgian prosecutors have refused to confirm the measures.

Mosques and asylum centres in the province of Limburg, in Flanders, are also under guard.
Hundreds of special forces searched woodland in the Hoge Kempen park again on Thursday, a week after a major military operation involving 600 troops, including Dutch and German soldiers, failed to find him.
Federal prosecutors admit that the longer Mr Conings is not found, the greater the chances are that the shooting instructor has killed himself.
But investigators are working on the assumption that the fugitive is alive and poses a threat.
