Liege, Belgium. A man lobbed GRENADES at Christmas shoppers this last Tuesday. He apparently didn't find the gift he wanted. Is there a grenade store in the mall or what?
A man with a history of drug and weapons offenses hurled grenades and sprayed bullets into a square crowded with Christmas shoppers Tuesday in eastern Belgium, killing at least three people and injuring scores, authorities said.
The attacker also died at the scene in the city of Liege, although the circumstances of his death remained murky. Local news reports cited witnesses who said he shot himself, though whether deliberately or accidentally was unclear.
A 75-year-old woman was also killed and at least 75 people were injured, some seriously. Belgian news reports later said that the number of those wounded exceeded 120.
