Lennik: Armed robbery of Muslim slaughterhouse

Three armed men tried to rob a Muslim slaughterhouse this past Saturday night in the Flemish-Brabant town of Lennik.

The slaughterhouse had been busy that day due to Eid ul-Adha and the assumption is that the robbers had chosen their target due to that reason. Around 8:25pm they broke into the slaughterhouse and threatened those present with firearms. They then fired several shots. One man, the manager, got a bullet in his foot.

Despite their show of strength the robbers left with no loot and fled in a Mercedes. The police searched the area but found no traces of the attackers.
