Liege has been hit by a grenade attack

Three people are dead and 75 injured after a gun and grenade attack in the centre of a Belgian city.

Witnesses say a man threw grenades at a bus stop in a busy square in the city of Liege. He died in the attack.

It's now thought he acted alone.

Doctors are looking after many of the injured people in a local courthouse.

Roads into the centre of the city have been sealed off and explosives experts are in the square.

Events like this are extremely rare and nobody knows why this attack's taken place, though it's not thought to be related to terrorism.
