BRUSSELS – Two men were shot dead in front of a hotel in the Belgian town of Bouillon at 4.20 in the afternoon, it was reported on Tuesday.

The news agency Belga said it had learnt from a reliable source that the men were shot by several bullets to the head as they stood by a car outside the Panorama hotel and restaurant, opposite the château.

Several people were sitting on a terrace nearby when the gunmen struck.

The attackers fled before police from Bertrix arrived.

Forensic police from Neufchâteau and police from Semois and Lesse and magistrate Jean-Marc Connerotte all headed to Bouillon to help in the murder investigation.

The area was immediately cordoned off.

Early inquiries suggest the two victims were not from Bouillon.
