4 dead in grenade, gun attack in Belgium

[Updated at 11:08 a.m. ET] Two teenagers and a woman died in a gun and grenade attack in the Belgian city of Liege in which the attacker also died, police said in a news conference Tuesday.

The attacker had been asked to come into the police station for an interview on charges related to drug trafficking and arms possession, the police spokeswoman said.

[Updated at 9:33 a.m. ET] A grenade attack in the eastern Belgian city of Liege left at least two people dead and 64 injured Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the governor of Liege province said.

Police are searching for at least one suspect, spokeswoman Katrin Delcourt said.

A source close to the government, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the media, told CNN that a man had thrown explosives in a city center square, Place Saint Lambert.

      Well, they did say the guy was supposed to appear for charges related to arms trafficking. I suspect if anyone knew where to buy grenades he would.
