Rumpole, your DailyMail link was updated 11:31 EDT, 29 May 2018, and has new videos and many more photos.
Also information about the two officers and the man who were killed. Very sad. :(

• Victims named as police officers Lucile Garcia and Soraya Belkacemi, and 22-year-old Cyril Vangriecke

A drug dealer and robber who was radicalised behind bars carried out the terror attack in Belgium that left three people dead.

Benjamin Herman, 36, was out on day release in the city of Liege when he hunted down two female police officers, stole their guns and shot them dead, before killing a third person.

Liege’s police chief said Herman’s motive was to target the police, while witnesses said the prisoner shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ as he launched the attack.

All three victims of the brutal attack have now been named.

The police officers have been identified as Lucile Garcia and Soraya Belkacemi, while the civilian killed was 22-year-old Cyril Vangriecken.
