Liege - A Belgian police official says the number of people injured and wounded in Tuesday's attack in the eastern city of Liege has risen to 123.

Four people died in the attack, including the assailant, whom police said had a criminal record.

The 33-year-old attacker threw hand grenades into a crowd in a central square and also fired with an automatic weapon.

The police official spoke on condition of anonymity because of department regulations.

    Just goes to show that evil is universal. This is lunacy on a monumental scale.

    @Sean. In this case, just as in the many other cases he has been implicated in, we will assume he is innocent until proven guilty. It does not mean he is innocent though.

    Almost everyone seems to miss the point that this happened in Belgium. It is not the result of South African politics/demography/social issues. Geddit?
