A POLICE officer has been stabbed to death near a train station in Brussels, it was reported.
The attacker is said to have shouted ‘Allahu akbar’ as he stabbed two officers.
One of the officers, a 29-year-old inspector was stabbed in the neck and died while the other was shot in the groin, reports Sudinfo.be.
Their colleagues opened fire on the attacker and exchange of gunfire took place.
The attack is being treated as a terrorist incident, according to Le Soir.
The Belgian capital was the scene of deadly ISIS terrorist attacks in March 2016.
Three jihadi’s detonated devices in the airport and on the metro system killing and maiming innocents as they waited for flights or traveled to work.
On the morning of the 22nd March 2016 two suicide bombers armed with explosives crammed into suitcases walked into the departures hall of Zaventem Airport.
At 7:58am the first bomb was detonated in check in row 11 with the second exploding nine seconds later by row 2.
Yells in Arabic were heard before the nail bombs were detonated.
A third bomber was prevented from detonating his device by an earlier explosion and fled the scene, leaving his bomb.
Just over an hour later another blast erupted on the metro system in the city center.
In the middle carriage of a three car train at Maalbeek station, near the European Commission headquarters, the bomb went off as it was pulling out of the station.
