Man shot in Brussels after knife attack on soldiers

Knife-wielding man shot in Brussels after attacking soldiers

"The soldiers neutralised an individual", Belgian emergency authorities said on Twitter.

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. "Soldiers at the scene responded".

"With the identity that we now have it is a 30-year-old man who is not known for terrorist activities", a spokeswoman for the prosecution in Brussels said.

Prosecutors issued a statement that the attacker "is a 30-year-old man who is not known for terrorist activities".
