A Belgian mayor has been found dead in a cemetery near his home with his throat slit.
The wife of Alfred Gadenne found his body in the cemetery located just yards from their home.
RTBF said Mr Gadenne, 71, was a popular mayor who personally opened and closed the graveyard each morning and night.
Prime Minister Charles Michel said in a tweet that he had learned with “dread of the brutal death of Alfred Gadenne”, adding: “All my thoughts are with his family and loved ones.”
Philippe Courard, president of the parliament for Belgium’s French-speaking south, tweeted: ‘Terrifying. What kind of world are we living in?’
