A machete-wielding man has been gunned down after attacking a group of soldiers while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ in Brussels – near a street where ISIS called for vehicle attacks just days ago.
The 30-year-old Somalian is thought to have died after injuring the troops, with witnesses reportedly hearing ‘two bangs’ during the incident.
Belgian prosecutors said: ‘We believe that it is a terrorist attack.’
