  • Terror struck Liege, Belgium Tuesday when an attacker fired off grenades at a city center bus stop, wounding 75 people and killing at least three, according to the BBC. The suspected gunman, 32-year-old author and ex-convict Nordine Amrani, took his own life after committing the crime. The fatalities include a 15-year-old boy, a 17-year-old girl and a 75-year-old woman. Reports from the AP say a 2-year-old girl is currently in critical condition.

  • One theory about how and why the attack occurred is tied to an honor killing case in Pakistan. On Tuesday, a Pakistani family was sentenced to prison by a Belgian court for taking the life of their daughter Sadia Sheikh. People following the story around the world are sharing their insights and concerns online.
