    Belgium - Six dead, 125 injured in Liege shooting, grenade attack, 13 Dec 2011

    Four people killed, including two teenagers, and 75 hurt as gunman hurls grenades into Christmas shoppers in Belgian city of Liege
    Four people died and 75 were injured when a rogue gunman lobbed grenades and shot into crowds of shoppers at a Christmas market in Liege, Belgium.

    The shoppers, many of them children, ran screaming for safety in the panic as the gunman opened fire.

    The dead included a 15-year-old boy, a 17-year-old girl, and a 75-year-old woman. The attacker, 32-year-old Nordine Amrani, who was a convicted sex attacker and drug dealer, also died.

    Among the injured is a two-year-old girl, who is 'clinging to life' in hospital.

    It was not immediately clear what motivated the attack in the busy Place Saint-Lambert square, the central entry point to downtown shopping streets in the city in eastern Belgium. The attack prompted hundreds of shoppers to stampede down old city streets, fleeing explosions and bullets.
