The Belgian newspaper Le Vif reported about a suicide in Verviers where the person blew himself up. The newspaper decided to clarify that it was not a terrorist attack. This point is repeated in the headline, in the intro, and in the article. Despite this incident having nothing to do with terrorism, almost half of the article is devoted to recount how in 2015, a week after the Charlie Hebdo attack, a terrorist cell was dismantled in Verviers.
