A man wielding a machete and shouting “God is great” in Arabic injured two female police officers Saturday outside a police station in southern Belgium, according to reports.
In a tweet, police said the attacker had been shot but was alive, Reuters reported.
Belgian state broadcaster VTM said the attacker later died.
The attack took place around 4 p.m. local time near the main police station in Charleroi.
Witnesses heard the assailant shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he attacked the officers.
Islamist bombers killed 32 people in suicide attacks in Brussels in March, and many of the jihadists who carried out attacks on Paris last November in which 130 people died were based in Belgium, according to Reuters.
