A source said: “She was rushed to hospital and is in a particularly bad way.”
Reports emerging from the scene indicates the attacker was “neutralised” by a third officer. Witnesses reported hearing gunshots near the station around 4pm. Belgian police confirmed the attacker is still alive but in a serious condition after being shot.
Police in Charleroi tweeted: “Two police officers injured by machete in front of police by someone shouting Allah Akkbar. Individual was shot but is alive.” So sad.
