Belgium police find woman’s body at home of Liege gunman who killed 4 people and injured 123
Washington Post ^ | 12-14/11 | AP Release

Posted on 12/14/2011 6:09:49 AM PST by icwhatudo

LIEGE, Belgium — The body of a woman has been found in the garage of a grenade-lobbing gunman, bringing to four the number of people killed in an attack in the city of Liege, officials said Wednesday.

Liege Prosecutor Daniele Reynders said the body of a woman in her forties was discovered during a search of Nordine Amrani’s property, and that she was killed before the murderous spree at Liege’s main square which also left 123 people injured.

Officials said he left his Liege home with a backpack, armed with hand grenades, a revolver and an FAL assault rifle.

He walked alone to a busy downtown square, then got onto a platform that gave him an ideal view of the area below, which was bedecked with a huge Christmas tree and crowded with shoppers.

From there, he lobbed three hand grenades toward a nearby bus shelter, which serves 1,800 buses a day — the explosions sending shards of glass from the shelter across a wide area. He then opened fire upon the crowd.

As soon as the shooting began, hundreds fled the square as well as a nearby Christmas market. Video from the scene showed the crowds, including a large group of children.

Yeah.

I just cannot imagine the possible reason why he was motivated to do this.

Maybe he lost his dog or something.

Last name: Amrani.

Hmmm. Is that Amish?

Seems no one has a clue as to the motivation of this guy.

I had one right away..........

BELGIAN JIHAD Nordine Amrani, a 32-year old Moroccan Muslim, Is the Crazed Gunman Who Shot and Hurled Hand Grenades at Christmas Shoppers In Liege Belgian Killing Six.

Liege killer Nordine Amrani murdered a cleaning lady in his rented flat before heading off on a bloodthirsty rampage in the centre of the Belgian city, it emerged today. The 32-year-old self-confessed ‘gun freak’ stood hurling grenades and spraying bullets onto crowds of Christmas shoppers and children from a platform in a busy city centre square.

He killed six people, including himself, and seriously injured 125 others yesterday lunchtime. It came shortly after he tried to rape a 45-year-old woman in his flat, where police have found an arsenal of weapons including a rocket launcher, AK47 and Kalashnikov.

And why do the police come to the conclusion that this is not Terrorism???

From the link I sent you:

“He had previously been convicted for drug dealing and illegal arms possession, as well as for holding stolen goods and other crimes, said Daniele Reynders, the public prosecutor for Liege. In September 2008 he was thrown behind bars for 58 months when police uncovered a weapons arsenal in his home. They found 10 firearms and 9,500 gun parts along with 2,800 cannabis plants, but a prison official said Amrani was granted early release last year.”

We are not the only country with a problem in the legal system.

Had not heard of the rape attempt. Was this a different woman from the dead one they found in his shed?

If he was sentenced to 58 months in 2008, he should still be in prison for another couple of years...

I don’t know.

It appears to be a very common problem with Muslims to have a twisted sexual appetite and morality.

Yahoo News report stated the following:
Amrani's lawyer told Belgian television that police in the eastern city of Liege had summoned his client on Tuesday about an alleged sexual offence, which had made him nervous. Amrani failed to show up.
Appears to be a different case. The cleaning woman was discovered after the grenade assault on Tuesday morning.

Maybe he was mad because he couldn’t get any silicone into his little Mohammed…

He doesn’t look like a typical Islamist. However, I bet it wasn’t a coincidence that he chose that particular place for his rampage, either.

Although it’s unlikely he got his grenades and rocket launcher in Belgium’s equivalent of WalMart, look for calls for stricter gun controls for native Belgians.

Well, to be fair, they’re right. It’s not terrorism, it’s jihad.

The 6th pillar of islam & every koranimal is required to participate in it.

"Police know no motive for the attack, but stressed that Amrani had no known links to terrorism or any history of mental illness or violent crime. But it did emerge that he was released on parole last year from a 58-month sentence for possessing weapons and 2,800 cannabis plants"..."In 2008, Amrani was jailed for illegal possession of 10 firearms, 9,500 "gun parts" and 2,800 cannabis plants but was granted parole last year. He also had convictions for pimping and trafficking stolen goods. A weapons aficionado, he was said to be able to dismantle, repair and put together all sorts of weapons."
...not to mention Amrani had quite the talent for acquiring illegal weaponry unnoticed. Notice how the article also states: "Police know no motive?" Perhaps this RTL.be video clip illustrates a hint. In this raw video clip, frightened people are seen fleeing an area running towards the camerman. At approx. six seconds into the video, listen carefully to hear a strong male voice in the background. Do you hear what I hear? . . .

This line “He killed six people, including himself, and seriously injured 125 others yesterday lunchtime. It came shortly after he tried to rape a 45-year-old woman in his flat,” makes it appear he attempted to rape a woman just prior to the shooting.

Other accounts make it seem the “vice” issue (in which he was called to the station about) happened at a previous party.

The prior sexual assault issue (no victim description available) was to be addressed in court on Tuesday morning, implying that victim survived her ordeal and reported it. The now deceased 40+ year old cleaning woman found in his shed after the grenade assault, obviously did not survive her ordeal. Unless you have links to clarify differently, it appears to be reports of two separate incidents - thus far.

Making a pretty big assumption there that he was muslim. I mean, did the MSM report anywhere at all that this scumbag was muslim? Amrani could be a good old-line Belgian name we just never heard of. In his picture he looks like a south Belgian to me, way, way south. Don’t go jumping to conclusions there buddy, I’m sure his parish priest will shortly be expressing surprise this former altar boy lost his mind. I’m really sure of that. /s

Agreed. Prior sexual assault was what he was summoned for (actions at a party)

Separate incident is woman they just found dead in his shed.

I was referencing the comment that he began his shooting rampage shortly after a rape attempt which may be a third attack on yet another woman, or possibly referring to a sexual assault on the woman whose body they found in the shed.

Since he's dead, can I have the FAL?

Taking a quick look at headlines, the prevailing spin seems to be that he was a “career criminal” and “gun nut”. Not a word about his religion.

Political correctness will get us all killed in the end.
