Another Terrorist attack in Belgium

A man suspected to be a terrorist attacked two policemen in Belgium with a knife.

According to daily mail, the man used a matchet to stab two police officers while shouting Allahu Akbar, injuring them in the process in Belgium. One of the officers suffered serious injuries to her face. 

The attack was carried out outside the police station in the Belgian City of Charleroi which is 38miles south of the capital of Brussels.

 The police were able to foil further attacks as they prevented the attacker from entering into the building. He was shot outside the building while the female officer was rushed to the hospital to receive treatment.

The prime minister of Belgium has condemned the attacks and pledged to beef security if need be.
The police force tweeted: 'Two police officers injured by machete in front of police by someone shouting Allah Akhkbar. Individual was shot.'

Prime Minister Michel has cut short his holiday in the south of France and will return to Belgium for a meeting on Sunday with the National Security Council. 

The machete attack took place at a wooden hut that had been erected outside the Charleroi police station.

A witness told local television RTL he heard gunshots at the scene and saw an ambulance. The area has tonight been sealed off.
