'Lone Wolf' Terror Attack Wounds Two Policewomen In Belgium

Reuters: Man yelling 'Allahu Akbar!' wounds two Belgian police in machete attack

A machete-wielding man yelling "Allahu Akbar!" (God is greatest) injured two female police officers before being fatally shot in the Belgian city of Charleroi on Saturday, in what the prime minister said appeared to be a terrorist act.

The attacker was shot by a third officer and subsequently died of his wounds, but the police officers were out of danger, police said.

"Initial indications clearly point towards terrorism," Prime Minister Charles Michel told the television channel RTL.

Public broadcaster VRT said the attacker had taken out a machete when two officers asked to search him at a checkpoint set up outside the city's police headquarters as part of security measures imposed after major Islamist attacks in the last nine months in Belgium and neighboring France.
