Breaking news just now on British TV: Apparently there has been some kind of grenade attack in the Belgian city of Liege. Some reports say that one person carried out the attack, and some say there were other people involved. Probably too early to say for sure at this stage. What does seem clear enough is that there has been at least one fatality, and several people have been injured.
Sources: BBC News, Sky News.

Update at 16:47 UK time: According to Reuters, the perpetrator of this attack, who is now being named by several news sources as Nordine Amrani, a thirty three (33) year old male, carried out the attack at Place St. Lambert, a shopping area in the town of Liege, firing shots from a rifle, and apparently throwing grenades around as well. The perpetrator then shot himself in the head with his own handgun, thereby ending the attack.
It's a pity this guy didn't just blow his own brains out to begin with. Now people are dead because of him, and the survivors of this attack won't just walk away scot free, no way - the scars of being on the receiving end of something like this, both physical and psychological, will be with them for a long time.
