Sounds like Islamic internecine conflict — more benefits of al-hijrah.

By Danyal Hussain For Mailonline, 2 February 2019:

One person has been killed and at least two others injured after a gunman opened fire at a cafe in Belgium.

Two people, believed to have been father and son, have been arrested and a weapon has been seized after shots were fired at a Turkish cafe in Antwerp, Belgium, according to media reports.

Police officers have cordoned off a large area around the scene of the shooting in the Brederodestraat area.

No motive has yet been shared for the shooting.

Local reports said that the victims were gunned down on a pavement outside the cafe, with two men shot first and a passerby also being caught in the hail of bullets.

There have been tensions between Turkish and Kurdish communities in that neighbourhood of Antwerp, Belgian media reported, although it is unclear if that contributed to the shooting.

Traffic and some tram lines were unable to pass around the scene this afternoon.
