Two Belgian police officers were wounded by a man wielding a machete outside a police station this afternoon.
The man was reportedly heard shouting ‘Allahu Akhbar’ as he attacked the two, including one female officer, in the city of Charleroi, reports RTL.
One of the officers are believed to be in a ‘serious’ condition, while Belgian police later confirmed the attacker has died from gunshot wounds.
Police in Charleroi tweeted: ‘Two police officers injured by machete in front of police by someone shouting Allah Akhkbar.’
A witness told RTL he heard gunshots and an ambulance was present at the scene.
A security perimeter has been set up around the site.
