1 of 3. Rescuers evacuate injured people at the Place Saint Lambert square where two men threw explosives in the city center of the Belgian city of Liege December 13, 2011.

At least one person was killed and up to 47 others wounded Tuesday when up to four grenades exploded outside the main courthouse in the eastern Belgian city of Liege.The attack took place around noon on Saint-Lambert square, home to the town’s courthouse and located near a busy Christmas market, Belga news agency said.

A two-year-old child is reportedly fighting for life in hospital. Six other victims are said to be gravely injured.

One of two or more assailants threw stun grenades into the courthouse while another was hurled at a bus shelter, RTL-TV1 said.

Shots were fired across the square by gunmen posted on the rooftop of a bakery shop, with further shots heard later from across town.

Police cordoned off the square and gave chase to the assailants, one of whom was reportedly killed. The gunmen are thought to be hiding in Liege cathedral.

The Karachi Post in Pakistan claimed that the attack was linked to a sentence in an honour killing case. It said the parents of Sadia Sheikh were sentenced on Monday when there had been a bomb alert in the court.

Gaspard Grosjean, a journalist for La Meuse Liege on the scene, told The Daily Telegraph there was panic and confusion on the streets of Liege.

“There is at least one dead and the attacker. Police are looking for another shooter. There are lots of ambulances and many casualties – at least 10 people.

“At the moment you can’t move in the city centre. People are crying and in shock – they do not know what is going on. Everyone has been told to stay inside and are hiding in shops.”…

 

UPDATE: One of the attackers was named Nordine Amrani. (Thanks to Robert for the link.) This is a Muslim name. Nordine = nur deen, light of the religion, and Amrani is related to Imran, the father of Moses according to the Qur’an (cf. sura 3, “The Family of Imran,” ahl-e-Imran).

  1. Do you hear what I hear? . . .

    raw RTL info.be video . . .ff to 0:06 and listen carefully . . .sounds like someone with a deep male voice is shouting “allah…ak..”. Also note the posture of the fleeing folks change as they pause & and redirect attention to the area from where that sound originates.

  2. cm, from your link . . . A google translation of the comments points out the following:

    “A person who claims that the BBC provides the information that the shooter would have shouted “Allah Akbar” before killing himself, I invite you to just go to the BBC website or watch or listen BBCNews radioOne. Your information is wrong.
    Tuesday, December 13, 2011 5:17 p.m. anonymous”

    Then listen to the audio portion of the raw video link I provided above.
    At the six second mark, it sounds like a male voice shouting “allah ak…” in the distance.

  3. I hate islam, but these unproven stories cause you to lose credibility
    and Pam G is even worse
    there are enough bad things about islam to keep you all busy,
    don’t post what you are not sure about or we will stop believing you.

  4. Next you will be referring me to the koran for information.
    The karachi post was a red herring
    there is yet to be any proof this nut was even a muzzie

    don’t bother to retract anything, it’s your integrity I was concerned about

  5. “there is yet to be any proof this nut was even a muzzie”

    He was a Moroccan with an “extensive criminal record” but no history of ‘violent crime’.

    Most Moroccans are Buddhists, right?

    Who is Nordine Amrani? Liege, Belgium Attacker Had 9,500 Gun Parts in 2008

    Earlier today Nordine Amrani, a 32-year old Moroccan, committed an attack in the center of Liege. Amrani threw grenades at a bus-stop, and then started firing with a revolver.

    Belgian police have ruled out links to terrorists (ie, Jihadism). Isn’t it Islamophobic to equate terrorism with Muslims? This was certainly a terror attack. Belgian newspapers are speculating that Amrani wanted revenge against the justice system. But bottom line – he didn’t attack the justice system. He didn’t attack policemen or judges or lawyers. He attacked Belgian civilians. A group of teenagers standing at a bus-stop. The casualties include an elderly lady and a baby.

    From Amrani’s point of view, he was taking revenge against Belgians. Though it seems that one of the casualties of his attack, Medhi Nathan Belhadj (15), is also Moroccan. Belhadj wasn’t killed for being Moroccan, he was killed for standing with other Belgians in a Belgian bus-stop.

    Don’t bother to retract anything, it’s your integrity lack of logic and your motive I am concerned about.

  6. Doubt it,
    It was a muzz, …, just another violent scum bag shit bag muzz who was probably deliberately not included in profile checks because these would offend its islamic rights. I gues the four people murdered by the islamic shit bag had no rights!!!

    HE WAS NOT A MUSLIM (SEE THE LINK) , pls don’t accuse muslims for whatevr bomb blast or any criminal act bfr u properly investigate it. This happens always jus as there’s a bomb blast muslims are accused, but then when they find out some one else has done it , that not in the news. I dare u’ll to find out one verse in the Quran or hadith(traditions of prophet Muhammed [peace be upon him] ) which encourages killing of innocent ppl.And knw this while ppl plot plans to tarnish the image of islam , The Almighty Allah who created what we can see And what we can’t is plotting a plan against them,his plan is far better than the planof his own creations. This is proven by the number of ppl who have embraced Islam after 9/11, which was a total conspiracy by moosad and some other American organisations .Allah is patient & he doesn’t hurry in to punishing his slaves even though they might be committing the worst crimes(muslims or non-muslims) but when his punishment comes, they will be caught by surprise and utter devastation,May Allah protect us.
    It must be also said that there are ppl who commit crimes in the name of religion while there are some who are fighting a very worthy cause but are given the wrong picture by the media ,its better IF WE CAN PREVENT OURSELVES BY BEING FOOLED BY THE MEDIA.
