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.
