Man shot after attacking soldiers in Brussels

Belgian soldiers have shot a man who attacked them with a knife in Brussels this evening, leaving him in a critical state in hospital.


The two soldiers were lightly wounded in the attack, one in the face and the other in the hand.

"With the identity that we currently have it is a 30-year-old man who is not known for terrorist activities," a spokeswoman for Belgium's prosecution service said.

In addition to regular police, Brussels streets are being patrolled by soldiers due to a heightened security threat level in the wake of militant attacks in Paris and the Belgian capital in 2015 and 2016.

In June, troops shot dead a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels' central train station but there were no other casualties, in what authorities treated a terrorist incident.
