Latest update : 2011-12-15

The death toll from an attack in the Belgian city of Liège rose to five on Wednesday after a woman died overnight from her injuries. Nordine Amrani killed three people and wounded 125 others on Tuesday before killing himself.

AFP - The toll from a murderous spree by a lone gunman in the Belgian city of Liege on Thursday climbed to five dead and 125 wounded after a woman succumbed to her injuries overnight, officials said.

The Liege hospital, quoted by Belga news agency, said a 75-year-old woman died in the early hours after suffering gunshot wounds in the Tuesday attack by ex convict Nordine Amrani.

Armed with grenades and an automatic assault rifle, the 33-year-old killed two teenaged boys and a 17-month-old baby on a square crowded with school-children and lunch-hour Christmas shoppers before killing himself with a shot to the head.

Police also found the body of a cleaning-woman in her 40s whom he had killed earlier near his home.
