WORDLESS WEDNESDAY - LIEGE ATTACK
more participants here
I start to think it's better not to switch on the Television. The program was interrupted this morning because a shooting had taken place in Liège, about 100 km from Brussels.
At 10:30, a man with a knife stabbed two policewomen, assaulted them from behind, stabbed them multiple times, seized their weapons, shot and killed the policewomen. He continued his escape and killed a 22-year-old man in a car, sitting at the passenger side.
Four other police officers were injured, the gunman was finally shot.
He was identified as Benjamin Hermann, born in 1985. He was known for common law crimes (robbery, assault, criminal association ...) and was deemed ultra-violent.
Despite this tragic event the level of the terrorist threat in Belgium remains at 2.
This confirms again that wherever you go in the world it can happen. When I travel to Egypt people ask me if I am not afraid of terror attacks. But where I go it's just a very peaceful corner. I think it's more dangerous finally to stay here ! Anyway when your time has come it doesn't matter where you are !
PS. Since May 26 I don't get your comments in my emails ! Has anybody the same problem ? Help needed !!
