Police find body in garage at grenade-thrower’s home
LIEGE | The body of a woman has been found in the garage of a grenade-throwing gunman, bringing to four the number of people killed in an attack in the city of Liege, officials said Wednesday.
Liege Prosecutor Daniele Reynders said the body of a woman, identified as a cleaning lady in her 40s, was discovered during a search of Nordine Amrani’s property. He said she was killed before the murderous spree in Liege’s main square, which also left 123 people injured.
“What killed him was a shot in the middle of his forehead,” she said.
Two male teenage students, 15 and 17, also died in the attack, while an 18-month-old toddler died Tuesday evening at a hospital, Liege police said. Several people remain in intensive care.
A 75-year-old woman who initially had been counted among the dead was taken off the list, even though she stands virtually no chance of recovering from her injuries, a spokeswoman for the Liege governor said.
Official says Saudi visit refutes U.S. assassination charge
TEHRAN | A rare visit by Iran’s intelligence chief to Saudi Arabia sought to refute U.S. claims that Tehran planned to kill the kingdom’s ambassador to the United States, a senior Iranian official said Wednesday.
Iran has dismissed the U.S. accusations that Tehran was involved in a plot to assassinate Ambassador Adel Al-Jubeir, calling the claims “absurd.” Two men, including a member of Iran’s Quds Force special foreign actions unit, have been charged in New York federal court in the plot.View Entire Story
