Man Attacks Two Police Officers In Belgium

Police have shot a man who attacked two police officers with a machete, in the Belgian city of Charleroi.

A man shot by police after he attacked two officers with a machete in the Belgian city of Charleroi has died.

The women officers’ injuries are not life-threatening.

The assailant is said to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is great” in Arabic) during the assault outside the city’s main police station.

Charleroi was used as a base by some of the jihadists involved in the attacks on Paris in November 2015 and Brussels last March.

The area around the police station has been sealed off.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel condemned the attack.
