Man shot in Brussels after attacking soldiers with machete

On Friday, Belgian soldiers shot a man after he attacked soldiers on patrol in Brussels.

According to the prosecutor's office, the suspect was a 30-year-old Somali who arrived in Belgium in 2004 and had taken Belgian nationality in 2015.

One of the two soldiers targeted was "slightly" wounded, according to federal prosecutors, who have opened a terror probe of that attack launched around 8:00 pm (1800 GMT).

In March 2016, 32 people were killed and more than 300 injured in coordinated attacks at Brussels airport and the city's metro.

The Federal Prosecutor's Office said in a statement Saturday that the man was known to police for assault charges, but had no previous terror-related offenses. The attacker had reportedly committed several "acts of vandalism" in the past but had not been identified by the authorities as security over terrorism, extremism or radicalism.

The officers did not need to be treated at hospital after the attack as police and emergency services cordoned off the streets outside the palace. We saw two to three ambulances, three army dogs, 10 police officers and the same amount of soldiers.

Also on Friday, two London police officers were slightly injured as they arrested a man outside Buckingham Palace after spotting a knife in his auto.

"We think it is a terrorist attack", said an official representative of the agency.

"All our support to our military", tweeted the belgian prime minister Charles Michel.

In June, troops shot dead a suspected suicide bomber in Brussels central train station.

"I heard yelling and straight away two shots", said one witness, Yohan.
