Belgium delivers its rejection of the German ultimatum to the German legation.
It includes the statement “Were Belgium to accept the proposals laid before it, the Belgian Government would sacrifice the nation’s honour while being false to its duties towards Europe”.
To clear its invasion route to France, the German army starts the invasion of Belgium by attacking the forts at Liège.
