Nordine Amrani left no explanation for Attack on Liege, prosecutor says - 14th Dec 2011

A man who went on a grenade and gun attack in the Belgian city of Liege left no explanation about why he did it, authorities said Wednesday.

There were at least 124 people in hospitals Wednesday, and at least five dead plus the gunman, according to prosecutor Danielle Reynders.

Nordine Amrani, the 33-year-old suspect, killed himself at the end of the shooting rampage Tuesday, officials said.

Authorities ruled out terrorism as a motive, saying he acted alone.

After the rampage, police found a dead woman in Amrani's home, a local police spokesman said Wednesday.

The 62-year-old woman is a cleaner whom the suspect killed before the attack, police said. The body was found in a marijuana-growing shed at Amrani's house. Read More
