Police in Belgium have shot a man who witnesses said attacked two people with a knife.

The suspect was reportedly hit in the hand by officers in Ghent during the incident on Bevrijdingslaan.

Pictures show a man pinned to the ground on the busy road as witnesses watched in horror.

‘The investigation is ongoing, we will comment later,’ public prosecutor said according to HLN.

It comes after armed police shot dead a suspected terrorist – feared to be wearing a suicide vest – after at least two people were stabbed in London.

The Metropolitan Police said the London shooting occurred at around 2pm on Streatham High Road on Sunday.

The force believes there are also ‘two injured victims’ from the incident and are awaiting updates on their condition.

In an earlier tweet, the Met said: ‘At this stage it is believed a number of people have been stabbed.

‘The circumstances are being assessed; the incident has been declared as terrorist-related.’
