Three die in Belgian stabbing incident with 'no terrorist nature'

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Three people were killed in an incident in an eastern Belgian village on Wednesday, Belgian media reported, while a local official said it was a family affair that had nothing to do with terrorism.

The La Libre Belgique daily said on its website a male attacker was among the three dead, who also included two women. Another daily, Le Soir, said he had entered a restaurant in the village of Moresnet-Chapelle and stabbed a former partner.

"This act has no terrorist nature and relates to the private sphere," Thierry Wimmer, mayor of neighbouring Plombieres, said on Facebook.
