Machete-wielding terrorist shot dead after attacking soldiers in Brussels

Man shot, 'neutralized' after attacking soldiers in Brussels

A man who attacked two soldiers with a knife in Brussels has died after being shot by the Belgian army.

Two soldiers were lightly wounded; one taking an injury to the hand - the other to the face.

The attack on Friday is being treated as a terrorist incident, the prosecutor's office said.

Tonight's incident happened just metres from a street where ISIS jihadis had called for vehicle attacks and police arrested a suspected bomber in a shopping mall. The threat is now at level three, the second highest, which indicates a "serious and real" threat, but not an imminent attack.
