Thieves blow up Bpost cashpoint

Would-be thieves eager to get their hands on some filthy lucre out east wasted their time!  An attempt to blow up a Bpost cashpoint and take off with the cash in Kinrooi (Limburg) on Saturday failed.

The would-be thieves caused a gas explosion at the Kinrooi branch of the local post office.  The Belgian Post Group branch was badly damaged, but the would-be thieves didn't get away with any cash at all!

The surrounding area of north Limburg was plagued by attacks on ATMS last summer.  The last attack in Kinrooi dates from last June.  In recent months though gangsters bided their time.
