MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Dozens of calls are coming to the Belgian Embassy in Moscow with the condolences for the relatives of the terror victims in the Belgian city of Liege on Wednesday, Minister-Counsellor of the Belgian Embassy in Moscow Bert Schoofs told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, a Liege resident (French-speaking Bologna) Nordine Amrani, 33, opened sporadic fire at civilians in a broad daylight. He killed six people, including himself, injured 122 people, including three severely wounded people.
“The calls and emails are coming from Russians with condolences. We value highly and are grateful for this,” the Belgian diplomat said. He noted that the massacre is an individual act without any political motives behind it. “According to the Belgian federal authorities, the criminal was already brought to criminal responsibility for keeping weapons. This was not a terrorist act,” the diplomat said.
The Belgian police reconstructed the scenario of the tragedy. A man with the bag in hands appeared at 12.30 local time (15.30 Moscow time) on the roof overlooking the Saint Lambert Square. He hurled four grenades one right after another at the bus stop, then took a light rifle FN FAL from the bag and opened fire on people at the square. When the criminal was short of cartridges he committed suicide from the pistol not trying to escape.
