Terror attacks in Europe in 2018

Breaking news. Two Belgian police officers shot dead in Liege. RIP.
The authorities confirm the attacker has been ‘neutralised ‘. Good, no messing about.
 
What we know so far:
'The shooting happened at around 10.30 a.m. local time (08.30 UTC) near a cafe in the Boulevard d'Avroy, located in the administrative district of the city.
'Two other officers were wounded.
'La Libre Belgique newspaper quoted a police source as saying the gunman shouted Allahu Akbar — God is greatest in Arabic.
'The shooter then fled to a nearby school where he took a woman hostage.
'Broadcaster RTBF said the gunman was later shot dead by police.
'The Belga news agency reported that the children from the school were quickly moved to a safe area.

But quick to blame mental health issues if they're ROP'ers
News reporting is straying into the same areas of euphemism that used to be the preserve of obituaries. As in 'He never married'(Gay), 'A raconteur'(A bore) and 'An affable character'(A drunken bore)

Its as much what isn't said as what is.
 
Now three dead , plus the dead turd.
Reports coming that the killer was shouting the usual ROP stuff.

Plainly he was mentally disturbed
 
They are very careful to avoid reporting the ethnicity or faith of the perpetrator these days. Here in the Netherlands they never do it.
Just out of interest - the Dutch have not had any incidents recently?

Hope those who are injured / traumatised in Liege recover toute de suite and condolences to victims

Cheers
 
Europe invited in and welcomed these terrorists - shouldn't complain now when a few minor incidents occur.

It's all part & parcel of multiculturalism & diversity.
We should embrace this for the colour it adds to our bland, white lives, even if the colour is usually blood red.

No matter how bad things get, you will never ever get those who encouraged and facilitated the mass influx of Muslims to admit that there is an inherent problem with Islam and its followers.

More worryingly, it will become increasingly difficult for anyone to be permitted to make any connection between Islam and the breakdown of social cohesion in the areas most affected by this influx.

Perhaps not quite such good drills after all if he was able to arm himself courtesy of the plod.

'LIEGE, Belgium (AP) — A knife-wielding man stabbed two police officers Tuesday in the Belgian city of Liege, stole their weapons and shot them and a bystander dead in an attack that prosecutors fear could be terror-related.

'The attacker, who was later killed by police, was an inmate who had been granted a few hours release Monday but failed to return to prison, officials said. It wasn’t immediately clear why he was imprisoned, but media reports say that he’s a known drug offender.

'Liege prosecutors’ spokesman Philippe Dulieu said the man approached two police officers from behind carrying a knife and stabbed them several times.

' “He then took their weapons. He used the weapons on the officers, who died,” Dulieu told reporters.

'Dulieu said the attacker then shot dead a 22-year-old man in a vehicle that was just leaving a parking place outside a nearby high school. The attacker then took a woman hostage inside the school.

' “Liege police intervened. He came out firing at police, wounding a number of them, notably in the legs. He was shot dead,” the spokesman said.'

Can't find the link, but apparently the prosecutor in Liege has stated the terrorist disarmed one of the coppers and used his own weapon on them.

RIP.

Edited to add: @SkippedOnce beat me to it.
