The billionaire who supports strong ties with Europe but also wants to mend relations with Russia claimed victory after a vote that took place amid weeks of fighting in eastern Ukraine where pro-Moscow separatists have seized government buildings and battled government troops.
Belgium hunts for suspect in attack
Belgium launched a nationwide hunt Sunday for a lone gunman who walked into the Jewish Museum, unpacked a Kalashnikov rifle, killed at least three people with a short burst of fire, packed up and briskly walked away.
Saturday’s attack led Belgian officials to immediately raise anti-terror measures and increase the protection for Jewish sites for what was widely seen as an anti-Semitic attack.
A government official had said a fourth victim, a Belgian man, died Sunday afternoon, but neither the interior ministry nor the prosecutor’s office could officially confirm it late Sunday. The victim has been in a critical condition since he was shot.
No one has claimed responsibility for the killings.
3 dead, 1 hurt in shooting at motel
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.
Three people were killed and a fourth person was wounded in a shooting at an oceanfront motel in Myrtle Beach, one of South Carolina’s most-popular tourist destinations.
The shootings took place around 11 p.m. Saturday in front of crowds of tourists at the Bermuda Sands Motel along the beach’s new boardwalk, Myrtle Beach Police Capt. David Knipes said.
Officers draped towels over the balcony of a breezeway just outside the doors to the rooms of the motel to shield two of the bodies from people on nearby Ocean Boulevard.
“We’ve got detectives working on it around the clock,” Knipes said Sunday. “We don’t have any suspects in custody.”
