Belgian city after deadly rampage asks ‘Why?’


LIEGE, Belgium (AP) — A card at a memorial to the victims asked the question haunting all of Belgium: “Why?”

Why did Nordine Amrani, a 33-year-old with a history of lawbreaking, sweep into this city’s holiday shopping center to unleash a grenade-and-gun rampage that killed three people and wounded 123 others? Why did he then kill himself?

Deepening the mystery, police announced Wednesday that another body had been found, that of a 45-year-old woman, in a shed where Amrani grew cannabis close to his home.

Liege Prosecutor Daniele Reynders said, after searches of Amrani’s house, terrorism could be excluded.

“It was a cleaning lady. This is how she met him yesterday morning,” she said. “She dies, shot with a bullet in the head.”
