    The officers were attacked in the city of Charleroi this afternoon by an someone with a a knife or machete

    A pair of police officers have been attacked with a machete by a man shouting 'Allahu Akbar' outside a police station in Belgium.

    The cops, reportedly both female, were attacked in the city of Charleroi this afternoon by an someone with a machete.

    One of the cops sustained deep cuts to the face and was rushed to hospital. Her colleague was only slightly injured.

    Police in Charleroi tweeted: "Two police officers injured by machete in front of police by someone shouting Allahu Akbar.

    "Individual was shot but is alive."

    A witness told RTL that he heard gunshots at the scene and there is an ambulance at the scene.

    He added: "The police asked to remain inside and close all."

    Charleroi has often been associated with extremist gangs.

    The ISIS unit which attacked Paris last November, killing 130 people in one night, is said to have picked up its AK47 and explosives in the city before heading for the French capital.

    The identity of the perpetrator and his motives are still unclear.


    [LOL at the last sentence, which is actually in the article]

    Elaborate.

    Tell me how geographically we are going to have thousands of unvetted military aged Muslim males wash up ashore on our Atlantic coast line?

    Assailant has died. I guess we will never find out his motive. Perhaps FranchiseBlade could investigate whether he was Greek or Armenian.

    I would bet 100 Euro on some leftist politician questioning why the assailant could not have been stopped alive.

    The vetting process is flawed, you know it and I know it. Another thing you must understand that we're fighting an ideology. That ideology is being brought here in massive numbers.

    Please elaborate why it's flawed. Provide some nuance for once.

    My photo made you discount my posts? That sounds stupid. . . .

    Now, why did you find one sentence of that article LOL-worthy again? (I mean, only answer if you are able.)

    Dude screams "Allahu Akbar" while attacking police women with a machete.

    Do you really think "his motives are unclear"?
