A man wielding a machete and yelling "Allahu Akbar!" (God is greatest) injured two female police officers outside the main police station in the southern Belgian city of Charleroi on Saturday, police said.

In a tweet, they said the attacker had been shot but was alive.

Islamist bombers killed 32 people in suicide attacks in Brussels in March, and many of the jihadists who carried out attacks on Paris last November in which 130 people died were based in Belgium.
