Belgium attacker left no explanation, prosecutor says

Liege, Belgium (CNN) - A man who went on a grenade and gun attack in the Belgian city of Liege left no explanation about why he did it, authorities said Wednesday.

There were at least 127 victims of the attack, with five dead plus the gunman, according to prosecutor Danielle Reynders.

Nordine Amrani, the 33-year-old suspect, killed himself at the end of the shooting rampage Tuesday.

Authorities ruled out terrorism as a motive, saying he acted alone.

After the rampage, police found a dead woman in Amrani's home, a local police spokesman said Wednesday. The woman is a cleaner whom the suspect killed before the attack, police said.

    If everyone in Belgium was armed with a backpack full of live grenades and and AK-47, this never would have happened.
