The man approached two female officers outside a police station in the city of Charleroi, south of Brussels, and set upon them with the blade.

He was then shot and wounded by a third officer nearby and was initially taken into custody alive, but has since died of his injuries.

It is understood that one of the female officers suffered “bad” injuries to her face, whilst the other was not so seriously injured.

A police source said: “She was rushed to hospital and is in a particularly bad way.”

This afternoon police in Charleroi tweeted: “Two police officers injured by machete in front of police by someone shouting Allah Akbar.

“Individual was shot but is alive.”

They later added: “The death of the machete attacker can be confirmed. The two police officers are now out of danger. Thank you for all your support.”

Witnesses said they heard gunshots at around 4pm local time near the Charleroi police station. The area has been sealed off and armed officers are at the scene.

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted this afternoon: “I strongly condemn the attack at Charleroi. My thoughts are with the victims, their loved ones and the police. We are following the situation very closely.”
