A man shot dead two police officers in the center of the eastern #Belgian city of #Liege on Tuesday and was himself shot dead after having taken a woman hostage, bit.ly/2L1Au9s
According to #Belgian paper @ladh, the murderer in #Liege #Belgium reportedly yelled "Allahu Akbar" when shooting down dead 2 policemen and a passersby bit.ly/2sntmMX
The jihadist behind the terror attack in #Liege #Belgium, Benjamin Herman, that killed 3 was a radicalised inmate that was freed yesterday from jail. bit.ly/2IRkmL2
#Liege #Belgium: A local prosecutor said that during an ID check, the man attacked the two police officers from behind with a knife before taking one of their guns and shooting them dead. The third victim was a passenger in a parked car.
From his name, one can deduct that the jihadist behind #Belgium #Liege attack is a convert to Islam. The attack puts one again in the limelight the issue of radicalisation in jails that has to be tackled as a priority. Also dangerous individuals cannot be granted leave from jail.
I was on @BBCRadioScot yesterday to discuss the #Liege jihadist attack: radicalisation in jails, naive judicial system made this attack possible. bit.ly/2H5iatE
Yet again, as in #France yesterday #Belgium #Liege's jihadist was included in a national terror watchlist but still was granted a leave. Huge disfunction that allowed the dangerous radical to roam free and kill 4 people. bit.ly/2H42k2m
In and out of jail for a variety of crimes since 2003, jihadist behind #Belgium #Liege attack Herman converted to Islam while in detention. Mad: It was the 14th time since his detention that he was granted temporary leave. How is it possible? reut.rs/2kyRtVm
Interesting assessment that radicalised inmates are now using "taqqiya" to make it very difficult for prison staff to know they have turned towards extremism. Before so many signs made it obvious that an inmate had radicalised himself. bit.ly/2xrf1F2
#Belgium #Liege jihadist attack:The cleaning lady that was taken hostage, who is a Muslim, reasoned with the killer, and prevented him from going further into the school. She was highly courageous, and her actions may have prevented victims at the school. bit.ly/2kBIByx
#IslamicState claimed responsibility for the #Liege #Belgium jihadist attack yesterday. It took longer than usual to claim it. To give any credibility to claim, we would need to get proof of allegiance of the #Belgian convert to #IS.
Video of woman on her balcony insulting #Belgium #Liege jihadist while attack was ongoing:"You're lucky I don't have a gun, otherwise you'll have one foot in the grave. Go f.. yourself with your Daesh. F..ing Allahu Akbar. Get the hell out of here you jerk"bit.ly/2skUzAA
