ISIS has claimed responsibility for a machete attack on a group of soldiers in Brussels last night.
The terror group claimed a 30-year-old man who was shot dead at the scene of the attack, which left a soldier injured, was acting on its behalf.
Authorities have described it as an ‘attempted terrorist murder’.
A statement by ISIS propaganda outlet Amaq claimed: ‘The perpetrator of the stabbing operation in Brussels is one of the soldiers of the Islamic State, and he carried out the operation in response to appeals to target countries of the (US-led) coalition’.
The statement, which did not name the man – who security services said was from Somalia – cited a ‘security source’.
Witnesses said the attacker was shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’, which means ‘God is great’.
