Brussels Police officers stabbed in terrorist attack
Two Belgian police officers are stabbed in what probably was a terrorist attack, said Belgian prosecutors.

The attack took place in broad daylight in the district of Schaerbeek, where a man armed with a knife went to attack on two policemen.

One was stabbed in the neck and the other in the stomach, then the perpetrator fled the place.

Shortly thereafter, the perpetrator was stopped by another group of cops. He then punched a policemen in the face, before being shot in the leg and arrested.

The attack took place in the same district where the men behind the terrorist attacks against the airport and subway in Brussels in March, had the bomb factory. 35 people were killed in those attacks.

The identity of the man who attacked the police officers on Wednesday is not known yet. Prosecutors believe, however, that the attack was terror-related.

- We have reason to believe that this incident was a terrorist attack, said Eric Van Der Sypt of the Belgian prosecutors.

The two policemen who were stabbed, did not receive serious injuries, he informs.

A train station nearby was closed and evacuated at the same time as the incident, allegedly as a result of a bomb threat. It is unclear whether it was related to the knife attack.
