A routine police control this morning in the town of Liège seems to have led to the death of 4 people when a person who had just left prison took the weapon of one of the police officers that was checking him and shot both of them dead.

He also shot a passer-by and fled into a school possibly to take hostages. He was shot dead a little while later by an overwhelming police presence who all focused on the attacker.

Social media is filling up with videos showing the gunfight between the police force and the terrorist.

In the end, 4 people (among whom the attacker) were killed. 2 police officers were shot dead and 4 are treated for gunshot wounds.

Several French media have reported the man shouted ‘allahu Akhbar’ but the Belgian government has not yet confirmed this information. As they have assigned Federal police forces to the matter to investigate and handle the case, it is assumed by Belgian and European media that the matter is terrorist related.

Latest reports state that the terrorist was 36-year-old Mr. Benjamin Herman, who was radicalized in prison. Fellow prisoners describe the man as ‘marginal and very violent.’ The two police officers who were killed appear to be female officers from the local corps in Liège.

Sheer damned madness. Self-inflicted state of horror. When you invite a viper into your lounge room, what would you expect? It is not as if there were not enough warnings from say Sweden as an example of what to expect. and everywhere these savages go… they bring the same with them… Surely they might sober up soon and act accordingly… all defies reason…

Ramadan, always one of the worst months for attacks
