Liège attack: death toll climbs to six - including ‘gun freak’
The gunman was named as Nordine Amrani, a 33-year-old Liègeois who was known to be a “gun freak”, according to the police. He was given a jail term of almost five years after police officers raided his metal workshop three years ago and found a dozen firearms, including an AK-47 machine-gun, and 9,500 gun parts. He was also found guilty of drug dealing after cultivating 2,800 marijuana plants.
Amrani arrived on the square with hand grenades, a rifle and a revolver.
While police, prosecutors and politicians all emphasised that the Liège tragedy was no terrorist or politically-inspired assault – “he has no history of terrorist acts,” the Liège prosecutor, Daniele Reynders, told journalists – there was no persuasive motive given to explain the rampage
We all know this won’t deter Spencer or Superhag from inventing fiction for attention it sure seems like this wasn’t any sort of gun nut, pot growing terrorist attack on Christmas.
