Photos of weapons and a cannabis farm belonging to the gunman who killed four people after hurling grenades and opening fire on a Belgian Christmas market.
Two teenage boys, a 75-year-old woman and a 17-month-old baby died after Nordine Amrani, 32, launched his attack in Leige’s busy Place Saint Lambert on Tuesday.
Amrani injured a further 122 people before killing himself. The body of a woman – believed to be his neighbour’s cleaner – was later found at his home.
Pictures released today from Amrani’s home show a cache of guns and military-style clothing.
Images taken in 2007 also reveal a huge cannabis factory containing almost 3,000 plants.
Amrani was known to be a “gun freak”, police have said. He was convicted for five years after police found a dozen firearms in his metal workshop, including an AK-47 machine gun. He was also found guilty of drugs offences after growing 2,800 marijuana plants.
Today the mother of the baby killed in the attack spoke of her grief and described how her son was given a last-minute baptism in hospital before he died.
Olivia Leblonk was holding her son Gabriel in her arms when he was shot.
She told the Daily Mail: “I had him in my arms when I heard a sound of gunfire followed by flash of light like lightening.
“I looked at my child and his eyes returned my look. I screamed. He had been wounded in the back of the head.”
