Police Officer stabbed in knife attack Brussels

A Brussels police officer was injured in a knife attack in front of the city’s main police station this morning, a spokeswoman has said.

The attack took place on the second day of a state visit to Belgium by French President Emmanuel Macron.

A local newspaper reported that it was an apparent Islamist militant attack. The spokeswoman refused to confirm the report, which said that the attacker had cried “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) during the incident.
