BRUSSELS - Belgian investigators have found the body of a woman killed by a gunman who shot dead four other people, including a 17-month-old toddler, and wounded 125 in eastern Belgium on Tuesday before shooting himself.

Prosecutor Cedric Visart de Bocarme told Belgian La Premiere radio station on Wednesday the woman's body had been found in a warehouse used by the gunman. It brought the death toll, including the gunman, to six.

"A search last night revealed in a warehouse used by the attacker, notably to grow cannabis, the body of a woman killed by the attacker before he went to the Place Saint Lambert," he said.

Nordine Amrani, a 33-year-old previously jailed for possession of arms and drugs offenses, hurled grenades and sprayed bullets into crowds of Christmas shoppers and children in a central square in the eastern city of Liege.
