A gun and grenade attack in the centre of the Belgian city of Liege has killed at least two people and wounded about 25 including a toddler, media say.
Witnesses say a man in his 40s threw grenades at a bus stop in Place Saint Lambert, a busy square. At least one other man is thought to be involved.

A two-year-old child is reportedly fighting for life in hospital. Six other victims are said to be gravely injured.
One of two or more assailants threw stun grenades into the courthouse while another was hurled at a bus shelter, RTL-TV1 said.
Shots were fired across the square by gunmen posted on the rooftop of a bakery shop, with further shots heard later from across town.
Police cordoned off the square and gave chase to the assailants, one of whom was reportedly killed. The gunmen are thought to be hiding in Liege cathedral.
“The Karachi Post in Pakistan claimed that the attack was linked to a sentence in an honour killing case. It said the parents of Sadia Sheikh were sentenced on Monday when there had been a bomb alert in the court.”
Looks like another muslim terrorist attack on Europe.
The first question is: Where did this guy get grenades?
Prayers for the people of Liege.
Yep, Amish alright.
...damn!, there must be some lawlessness going on here....(snicker)
So when will we get the stories about how this is the fault of the Belgian legal system because they condemned an honor killing? Don’t those silly Belgians understand that upholding one’s family honor should be allowed in Belgianistan?
Out of the diplomatic pouch in the Iranian Embassy in Brussels, no doubt.
The MSM “news” has only 2 pathways to handle this.
1. Was Islam and Sharia involved?
IF YES ===>
Say nothing, OR Blame the TeaParty,
OR “lone right wing gunman” OR “work place accident”
IF NO ====>
Go back to fawning Obama, covering up DNC corruption
and the weather.
Watch this story get buried. Islam is not to be questioned.
It must be that pernicious Grenade Show Loophole! /s
Liege is a beautiful small city. Prayers for the victims. Vengeance against the Muslims. All mosques should be shut down.
Who wouldn't defend sharia law and the right to avenge allah by blowing up infidel toddlers at a Christmas market? I presume the rest of this yoot gang are pissing in the communion cups at the Liege cathedral where they took “sanctuary”
Obviously more Belgiques simply need to arrange mosque field trips for their children to enhance cultural acceptance.
And to improve public security by strip-searching old white ladies in wheelchairs
Any country that willingly takes in the Islamic culture in the name of equality and diversity drinks its own poison.
Any western nation that willingly takes in the Islamic culture in the name of equality and diversity drinks its own poison.
From his mosque.
This story will be buried... unless they can somehow pin this on a White Christian hetrosexual male, then the story won’t be buried, all you will hear in the media is “White rightwing Christian” (think Norway)
also “mentally ill”, that’s almost always included either way.
I bet “honour killings” won’t be prosecuted any more.
One of the attackers identified as Nordine Amrani.
The attack took place around noon local time on Saint-Lambert Square, home to the town’s courthouse and located near a busy Christmas market, according to reports.
Belgian news site Lesoir.be has identified the attacker who was shot by police as Nordine Amrani, who was sentenced Tuesday to 29 years in prison for possession of weapons and cultivation of cannabis plants.
Belgium.AFP reporting 2 dead, 64 hurt
Just read a story i can’t link here but the Belgium police are dismissing the idea was more than one attacker(suicide attack they say).
2.14pm: The details of the attack remain unclear, with many differing reports still coming out.
The mayor of Liège, Willy Demeyer, has spoken to La Meuse newspaper after talks with the police, and has denied reports that three attackers were involved.
The attacker is understood to have acted alone; he had hand grenades and a kalachnikov. He shot into the crowd on the place Saint Lambert before being killed himself by a grenade. There was also another person killed. The attacker is known to the police, notably for drug offences.
A newspaper, Sudpresse, says it has had official confirmation that the dead attacker was named Nordine Amrani. This could not be independently confirmed. It writes:
Nordine Amrani is a resident of Liege aged 32 years old.
It says he was convicted in 2008 by the court of Liège to 58 months behind bars for the possession of weapons and for growing 2,800 cannabis plants as part of a criminal gang. None of this could be immediately confirmed.
That was the early speculation based on a report from a Pakistani newspaper they picked up. There had been a bomb threat tied to the trial.
Its looking now more likely that this was a known criminal acting alone. How he got a Kalashnikov and grenades (that may turn out to be flash-bangs) is unknown.
Attacker in Liége confirmed 31 year-old Moroccan-Belgian with criminal background in drug and weapons charges
Death toll now raised to 4 (including the shooter). The shooter’s car was found in the area.
Police say only one attacker in today’s attack, Nordine Amrani, committed suicide right after fireing and detonated grenades
you know.........you’re probably right about that. Hadn’t crossed my mind, but I bet thats exactly where they came from.
Like the fellow in Hollywood last weekend schooting at random cars screaming... what was he screaming again?
Both the IRA and the Red Brigade had the old pineapple frags on close out sale last week!
Do you have a link for that?
Both I and Theodore Roosevelt are descended from Wallonians, the people who settled Manhattan island. When I was doing a lot of genealogy, I used various search engines to look for them and kept coming up with porn sights. Weird.
Officials quick to say that grenade and gunfire attack that killed 4 and wound 64 carried out by Moroccan is...NOT TERRORISM.
Very wrong, gun ownership is legal across Europe.
Sadly, its the UK’s laws that are amongst the most restrictive.
Attackers Throw Explosives in Belgian Town, Killing Two
Several men armed with hand grenades and guns attacked a busy bus stop in eastern Belgium on Tuesday, killing at least two people and wounding about a dozen, officials and media reports said.
Media VERY QUICK to point out this is not Terror-related, although it does involve a Muzzie attacking a Christmas Festival.
It is very well known that the koranimals in the surrounding No Go Zones throughout France are as heavily armed as the Amry - mech armor and they have the will to use it as shown by this koranimal today.
They’ll have to bring in the Legion to clear out the koranimals.
“Watch this story get buried. Islam is not to be questioned.”
Contrast that with the white Norwegian gunman. It seemed like in a few minutes we had a full profile (right-wing, christian, etc) and knew all about his facebook page. Hmmm
I think the real story here is that all of you dhimmi need to stop pissing-off the moozlums. Have you no shame????
In 2009, three young girls were in a car with their step mother and smashed by another car into the Rideau Canal, Ottawa. The estranged father and mother of the original family, from Afghanistan are charged, with their son. Honour killings, written off as family violence. Girls were texting boy friends and showing off in light revealing clothing, may have set the father Mohammad Shafia off. A prominent women journalist has listed desperate attempt, after attempt, of the girls and step mother who were trying to hide from this man. The designated authorities failed them. Canada beware- the trial for murder continues.
A jihadi cannot have a criminal record and still be a jihadi? To make a case for it being a "criminal acting alone", you must supply at least a plausible criminal motive for the attack.
In the absence of such a motive, the only motive that remains is a jihad response to yesterday's honor killing convictions.
