It was pretty busy in the Brussels Central Station on Wednesday afternoon, when two friends sat down to wait for the arrival of a train.
Two boys of North African descent approached the friends and asked for directions. They they tried to take the MP3 player the two were listening to. The friends resisted trying to shake the attackers off, but then one of the attackers took out a knife and knifed the owner of the MP3 player in the heart.
The two attackers fled the scene and have not been caught yet. However, police have a good description of the suspects and enough witnesses who came forward. The 17 year old victim died later in the hospital of his wounds.
According to the prosecution, this type of theft happens almost daily in Brussels, though it usually doesn't end so badly.
