A machete-wielding attacker was shot dead in Belgium after he shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ before injuring a policewoman and her male colleague.
The attacker was, however, shot by a third officer and has been confirmed dead from the shooting injuries.
The two officers were injured during the attack in the Belgian city of Charleroi, leaving the female officer with significant ‘wounds to the face’, according to reports.
An investigating source said: “She (the female officer) was rushed to hospital and is in a particularly bad way.
“A third officer shot the attacker, and he in turn was rushed to hospital with serious injuries.”
Belgium has a large Muslim minority and was the scene of an attack in March by a group swearing allegiance to ISIS.
